An easy drinking style showing an aromatic and floral nose, leading to fresh fruits on the palate with a touch of crisp minerality and a whistle clean bitter lemon finish.
The Domaine de l'Elite is part of Domaine Creusserome, a family winery located in the south of Burgundy near Clessé. Established in 2007 they produce traditionally crafted wines from 33 hectares of vineyard in the communes of Viré and Peronne.
2017 was a great vintage in the Mâconnais. The summer weather was mainly sunny and warm, interspersed with cooler, rainy days, which allowed the vegetative cycle to develop and the grapes to reach excellent maturity levels. The resulting wines are aromatic and full of varietal character with the cooler nights producing slightly higher acidity levels.
The Mâcon-Villages appellation covers white wines produced in selected communes of the Mâconnais wine area in southern Burgundy. These vines are grown in clay limestone soils.
The grapes were harvested at optimum maturity and then fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, in order to preserve the integrity of the aromatics and flavour profiles of the grapes along with the nuances of the Mâcon terroir from which they hail.
A refreshing apéritif, but also has enough fruit to accompany poultry served in a creamy sauce; fish and fresh seafood dishes. Wonderful with pan-fried salmon.
