Jean Marie Chaland Macon-Burgy Terres Rouges 2019
A succulent Beaujolais-by-any-other-name, this Gamay from Chaland is located in the nearby, but fancier, area of Viré in the Maconnais. And one can’t help that the prestigious provenance has something to do with the rich complexity of this French red. Domaine Jean Marie Chaland, a family-run estate has only 0.8 hectares planted with Gamay that thrives on the unique pink limestone soil of Mâcon-Burgy. Under Jean-Marie Chaland, these vines are meticulously nurtured and showcase the regions’ distinct terroir.
