Maconnais superstar, Domaine Fichet, is giving its Cote de Beaune neighbours a run for their money. By focusing on individual vineyards, the Fichet brothers have unlocked the potential of their land and claim they will not stop improving their output until their family winery is held in the same regard as the famous names from Puligny- or Chassagne-Montrachet.
Old vines, free draining shale soils and the perfect amount of sunshine work in collaboration to ensure the grapes ripen evenly. The grapes are sorted carefully and aged on their lees, then fermented in old barriques. The results are simply superb.
