DOMAINE THIERRY DROUIN Macon-Bussières Blanc
From 35 year-old vines comes a rich and opulent Chardonnay that’s been gravity fed and tended to by hand before spending 10 months in French oak. Battonage and ageing on the lees lends a great weight and complexity including persistent notes of pineapple, honeysuckle, vanilla and a creamy citrusy finish. The Bussières Blanc is a white that will delight everyone.
