BRET BROTHERS 2010 MACON UCHIZY CLIMAT "LA MARTINE" - MACONNAIS, WHITE BURGUNDY (CHARDONNAY) 750ML
By 13 October 2012- Posted on
Uchizy, whose vineyard faces East gives delicious wines. It is particularly true in the case of our MÃ¢con-Uchizy Climat Â« La Martine Â» made from 50+ year-old vines. In the village they say that La Martine (roll the Â« rrr Â»s pronoucing Â« La Marrrrrtine Â») once was the governess of famous French romantic poet Lamartine, a son of the MÃ¢connais. The soil has always been ploughed in this plot, a rather deep soil of clay and limestone, with loads of small limey stones. All contributes to the production of a rich, fruity, generous wine.
