Mâconnais, all the way...

It's always a great day in the Mâconnais, especially when you're tasting at Domaine Thibert and Chateau des Rontets. Even more so when it's one of the brightest, sunniest, prettiest days of the year...

The new cuverie is almost finished at Domaine Thibert. They now have 75 acres of vines and it was getting very tight in their old facility, which was only 10 years old. Now with twice the space, Christophe will finally have the room he needs. We tasted a line-up of the 2013s in the new building - they are all in tank now awaiting bottling later this summer. In a word - yes, please..

After a delish casse-croute (light snack - only 4 courses!) in the Thibert tasting room, we were off up the hill for the dramatic views and great wines at Chateau des Rontets. Fabio Gazeau-Montrasi is always charming and fascinating, and his wines are models of purity and precision. His cellar is also the most elegant you'll ever see (his previous life as an architect definitely shows!)

Gorgeous cellar, gorgeous wines at Chateau des Rontets

We tasted in the garden, under the shade trees, where we all could have lingered for the rest of the day and night (if not for the rest of our lives!) Un Grand Merci to Fabio for a fabulous afternoon. Then it was back to Beaune, to get ready to attack the Côte de Nuits over the next couple of days. Hide the old bottles, here we come...
