Jean Claude Rateau Beaune Clos de Mariage Blanc 2017
Located toward the bottom of the slope beneath Beaune Grèves and adjacent to Les Cents Vignes, Clos des Mariages is a mix of young and very old vines planted in clay and limestone soils. The lovely 2017 Blanc shows high-toned aromas of lime-flower, melon, pear, wet stone and honeysuckle. The palate is light and silky with pear, apple and citrus flavours with chalky minerals and herbal notes in the refreshing finish. The wine is made of Chardonnay & Pinot Beurot (the god father of Pinot Gris) The palate is rich and inviting. A wine to enjoy now, but will also improve with age.
