Collovray et Terrier Macon Villages Tradition, 2013

This is an old favorite that I enjoyed many times in the 1990s. Also known as Domaine Deux Roches, the estate also produces very good Pouilly Fuisse and Saint Veran wines.

This 2013 has taken on a deep gold color, showing more maturity than I would expect. I bought a case or two of the 1990 and was still enjoying it 1998 and later. Otherwise, though, the wine is fresh and lively. Broad apple and citrus smells and flavors. I don't believe this wine is aged in oak, but it does have some leesy qualities that give it body and richness. Lots of subtelty, reminds me of a Pouilly Fuisse.
