Verget Mâcon-Bussieres Vignes de Montbrison 2020


A very refined Macon from a village renowned for bright wines with a tingly spine of acidity. Fermented entirely in wood and aged in 25% new French oak. Oak blurs the edges here, which unusually for this part of the world possesses an angular structure. Citrus notes, grapefruit, white peach, nectarine, cashew and wood spice. So much flavour, a real powerhouse. Driven and super bright, with green apple notes and brioche in the mix. There’s a tingling, pithy squeeze adding textural interest, which holds the palate for a couple of minutes at least. Precise, focused and long. Stunning. Waters Wine Co


Offering up aromas of peach, pear, golden orchard fruit and freshly baked bread, the 2019 Mâcon-Bussières Vignes de Montbrison is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, with an elegantly textural attack, lively acids and a nicely defined finish. This has turned out very well. 90 points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate


Screwcap. The Mâcon-Bussières vineyard is situated to the north of the stunning Roche de Vergisson, directly below the village of the same name. It sits on a gentle, southeast-facing slope and the shallow soil is predominantly clay and limestone with numerous stones. Verget’s bottling comes from one of the oldest plots of vines in this vineyard and, again, only free-run juices are used. Fermentation occurs entirely in wood, with 25% new.
