Giroux Macon-Fuisse Vers Chanes 2020
Sebastien Giroux has 6 hectares of vines in and around Fuissé. The wines are very much handmade, with élévage carefully calibrated according to vineyard and vintage. Sebastien bottles only when he feels his wines are ready. We were drawn to the domaine by praise from William Kelley, who described the wines as “supple, pure, and charming.”
Giroux’s Macon-Fuissé “Vers Chanes” 2020 is a remarkably good value. The vines lie just outside the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation, on higher ground with a bit more clay. Perhaps the wine benefited from its altitude in this very hot and dry vintage, but whatever the reason, it shows beautiful balance, offering a blend of orchard and citrus fruits that mingle with a lovely mineral line. There’s a touch of salinity on the finish that gives the wine a dynamic feel.
