Domaine Michel Barraud Mâcon-Villages Les Pierres-Vieilles Vignes



Produced from old-vines Chardonnay, and blended to Michael and Harmon’s exacting specifications, “Les Pierres” sees only minimal handling to achieve clarity and brilliance, and a soft bottling process guarantees maximum expression of flavor and aroma.  The resulting wine is rich, with aromas of quince and citrus fruits, a generous and full mouthfeel, and typically Macon flavors of apples, pears, and warm spices.  As with the Delaye Saint-Véran (see above), the aim here is a wine that expresses its origins clearly, and without pretense.  “Les Pierres” is raised in stainless steel, which contributes to its clean, crisp and pure flavor profile.  A best-seller year in and year out, and for good reason!
