Auvigue Mâcon-Villages Moulin du Pont 12pk 2018
The name ‘Auvigue’ was already known in 1629 in the vineyards of Beaujolais and Mâconnais. Today, the grapes come from family estates covering 6 hectares including two that have been organically farmed for over 20 years in the Mâcon-Solutré and Pouilly-Fuissé appellations. To allow each parcel to present the unique microclimates, Jean-Pierre and Michel Auvigue always adapt the vinification process to the requirement of each plot. The wines are only lightly filtered before being bottled to retain all the elements required for the development of their true Burgundian nature. Read More
Auvigue Mâcon-Villages Moulin du Pont 2018
Plenty of flavour here. Apricot, peach and honey, with some peppermint and flowers. It’s glossy and slightly slippery in texture, but cut back into shape with cool acidity. White mint chocolate is another thing that’s going on, with a handful of nuts thrown in for good measure. Finish is solid, and again that cool mint character in with warmer yellow fruit. It’s a nice wine.
