Domaine des Crêts 2016 Mâcon-Villages

The basic wine here is made the same way that Lequin-Colin’s wines are made from the “Retour aux Racines” range and up, which is to say, it is all fermented in oak, but only 10-15% new. The grapes come from both climat parcels of “L’Echenault de Serre” and “En Bout.” After alcoholic and malolactic fermentation, the wine is raised in 20 hectoliter neutral oak casks before bottling, but the goal is to move all fermentation here to 450L oak barrels. In total, Domaine de Crêts has 3 ha of chardonnay, and this is not the typical Mâcon-Villages. It isn’t rich or buttery or oaky or opulent. Instead, its focus is limestone and citrus and length and purity.
