    Famille Paquet Mâcon-Prissé "Le Clos" '20

    Burgundy

    Famille Paquet Mâcon-Prissé "Le Clos" '20

    We’re excited to share another wine from Famille Paquet with you, and those of you who have had these wines before will surely want to try this one as well. Since taking over their family’s 12-hectare property in the Mâconnais region of Burgundy, in 2016, the three brothers behind Famille Paquet—Camille, Mathieu, and Jean-Baptiste—have been developing their vineyards into their ideal domaine. They now have almost 30 hectares in multiple appellations in the Mâconnais, in and around Pouilly-Fuissé and the original village of Saint-Véran. This area of Burgundy benefits from a bit more sunshine than its northern neighbors, so the grapes ripen more easily and organic farming is easier, especially compared with Chablis. Using organic principles and a minimal-intervention approach to winemaking, the Paquets are focused on high quality and accessibility, two descriptors seldom used together when talking about wine from Burgundy. The light touch in the winemaking process is also what distinguishes these wines from those typically made in the area. It’s rare to find such classic, elegant expressions of Chardonnay from Burgundy that are also great values. 

    “Le Clos” is from a single parcel of Chardonnay in the village of Prissé. The wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts, then matured in tank for 6–7 months to preserve the vibrant, fresh notes of the variety. Medium-bodied, it shows ripe orchard fruits, light floral notes, and a touch of ginger that complements the citrus character. It is beautifully balanced, with an earthy, mineral quality and bright acidity. Fresh and versatile, “Le Clos” would be fantastic with a well-curated cheese plate, or with a range of seafood or poultry dishes.

    The Paquet wines always appeal with their expressive nose and palate, and they easily stand up to more expensive offerings from neighboring areas of Burgundy. Don't miss this latest arrival!
