Nicolas Maillet (certified organic practicing biodynamic)

France / Burgundy / Macon Verze

White of Chardonnay

One 750ml bottle (12 bottles make a full case)

"Sourced from three plots of 85+ year old vines located on the eastern slopes over-looking Maillet’s home village of Verzé. As the cuvée name indicates, the ubiquitous white chalk permeates the cart path connecting the vineyards... In the tiny village of Verzé, northwest of Mâcon, 4th generation winegrower Nicolas Maillet quietly plies his trade with very little fanfare and not much notoriety outside of France. Locally he has acquired huge respect as a mentor for many young, organically oriented winegrowers seeking to turn their dreams into reality. This hard-working, philosophical, man of the earth’s pedigree is evident when shaking his calloused hand, as he doesn’t spend much time in the office or on the road selling his wines, since they sell themselves. On a recent trip, this generosity with his time and tools became evident when a young neighbor happened by to return a piece of tractor equipment that Nicolas had lent him. Maillet has farmed organically since 2010 (certified by Ecocert) and he began implementing biodynamic practices in 2013. Particular attention is paid to the upkeep of the soil to ensure a vibrant and healthy micro-biome." -Beaune Imports
