Southern Burgundy's 2016 vintage started cold but finished warm and dry. Lower yields in the region left grapes with plenty of sugar and acidity, resulting in ripe, round, and bright Chardonnay. Domaine Chêne's Mâcon Milly Lamartine serves up an exemplary taste profile of apple, pear, and lemon, combined with scents of chamomile, butter, and stone. This white wine's flexibility is second to none for the price!
 
"...the purity of fruit makes this age-worthy, concentrated white Burgundy a superb mouthwatering aperitif, as well as an excellent accompaniment to goats cheeses and all seafood - especially oysters." ~Domaine Chene Macon

The Vintage
Due to frosts occurring on April 13th, 2016 was a smaller yielding harvest - down 25% for the small, family-owned Domaine Chene. The 2016 shows tightly knit layers of Chardonnay flavor, more so than the lower acidity 2015 vintage. The sunny, dry September weather enabled a mid-month ripe harvest, and the hallmarks were great balance with good sugars and acidities. The length of the wine is greater and more chiseled than the "fatter" 2015s, and the purity of fruit makes this age-worthy concentrated white Burgundy a superb mouthwatering aperitif, as well as an excellent accompaniment to goats cheeses and all seafood - especially oysters.

The Estate
Our estate is located in the heart of Macon, between Mâcon and Cluny, in the town of Berzé. Since 1973, our winery has continued to grow year after year. In 1999, we created a GAEC Father and Son to develop and commercialize our products in the cellar. The estate currently has an area of 30 hectares with an annual production of about 2000 hectoliters. Our winery was built with modern and efficient equipment. By utilizing the modernism of the facility as well as traditional know-how, we ensure optimum safety, allowing us to continue producing wines of quality: 
Our vines are derived directly from our nursery, 
Our vineyard is planted on clay-limestone soil stony very good exposure, 
We practice sustainable farming (plowing, weeding non residual reduction treatments ...) 
The grapes are harvested at maximum stage of maturity. 
Our products are from different grape varieties of Burgundy (Chardonnay, Pinot Black, Gamay, Aligoté) which allows to diversify our range.
