Domaine Luquet

Domaine Luquet Depuis 1878 is run by fifth generation Patrick Luquet. This 26 ha family domaine is very much in the heart of the village of Fuissé, in the Saône-et-Loire department (7 kms from Mâcon) Indeed the ‘Au Bourg’ is situated in front of the Church in the centre of the village. Patrick uses no oak ageing in the winemaking process whatsoever, producing wines that express both fruit and terroir with no interfering dimensions. As Patrick says “We really appreciate our terroir”. Renowned for their purity his wines are beautiful from an early age.

Tasting Notes

There is no oak ageing here. A full and rich bouquet is enhanced by a touch of fresh, ripe banana. The mouthfeel is rich and creamy, the depth deriving from one year on the lees. There are generous notes of apple and lychee as well as an exotic mango richness.

Vinification

Traditional vinification in stainless steel tanks, preserving the characteristics of both the Chardonnay grape and the stony terroir.
