Domaine Luquet Depuis 1878

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 ‘Clos du 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.
A very floral, hedgerow nose, upfront and direct leading to a stewed apple and almond butter palate. Ripe in the mouth, lovely soft texture and crisp steely acidity.

Produced from 40 year old vines. Mechanical harvest, pneumatic pressing at low presure. Natural yeast. Malolactic fermentation.Matured in stainless steel tanks to preserve the purity of the fruit and terroir.
