Domaine des Crêts 2019 Mâcon-Chardonnay Climat "En Bout"
This climat holds the older plantings of chardonnay for Domaine de Crêts, and it is situated above “L’Echenault de Serre.” “En Bout” means “at the end,” and it accurately describes the site at the top of the hill where the clay topsoil has been eroded away and what is left is limestone, akin to that found in the Côte d’Or, here in the northern part of the Mâcon AOC. The grapes are harvested later here than in L’Echenault but still typically finishes with about a half percent less alcohol.
