Senaillet Macon Davaye, Domaine de la Croix Senaillet.
Senaillet Macon Davaye is a very easy going wine. It has a mass of really fresh fruit that is undercut with a deep minerality. The fruity fresh flavours seem to come out in very seductive bursts. This cuvée has a pale yellow robe with silvery tints that shows itself off in a very flattering light. A super aperitif that is equally at home being drunk with simply cooked fish.
From a selection of five plots on the estate that are really starting to come into their prime. Their chalky-clay nature really shines through in the minerally nature of this thoroughly authentic wine. Aged in tanks ‘ sur lie ‘ which gives a certain yeastiness there is a level of complexity here that is really unusual at this price point.
Grower: Domaine de la Croix Senaillet.
Matches: drink as an aperitif or with simply cooked fish. Also good with Asian cuisine.
