So much so that it can be a grand undertaking to absorb all that the region has to offer. I’ve traveled to Bourgogne several times over the last few years and am always discovering new things I didn’t know before. To learn from the comfort of my home during these trying times was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up.
Learning about wine, winemaking or regions, especially those with a vast and complex history is rewarding. Particularly, Bourgogne, a region so steeped in history, tradition and protocol. So to have a few more doors opened was truly beautiful.
Tasting the village of Mâcon-Uchizy the designation created in 2005 and covers 43 hectares. It is just one of the 27 villages in the AOC. Mâconnais is the appellation which is almost 100% Chardonnay. The village of Uchizy has under 46 hectares of wine under vine. The winery, Chateau Giroud, sells this wine for just $13 in the US. It was rich, flavorful, well balanced, solid structure and a complexity you don’t see in wine in this price range. If I’d seen it on the shelf in a wine store, I might have been hesitant to try it.
