Now, about the wine:
Claude Manciat, a top-notch producer in the Maconnais, took the bold step of bottling his own wine in the '80s. Fast forward, his daughter, Marie-Pierre Manciat, the 5th-generation winemaker, runs the show. They focus on crafting flawless fruit through sustainable vineyard practices. Expect lower yields, producing rich, powerful wines that capture the essence of the calcareous soils.
It's 100% Pinot Noir, displaying a gorgeous deep crimson ruby hue, with delicate aromas of red and black fruits. When you sip, it caresses your palate, smooth and rounded, with gentle tannins and a refreshing touch. Pure delight!
And the 2022 vintage in Burgundy? Decanter says “this year is overwhelmingly positive,” and this wine is proof.
