Clos Noly is named after the oldest vineyard at Domaine Manciat-Poncet which is based in Chaintré, owned and managed by the jubilant Marie-Pierre Manciat, who represents the 5th generation of vignorons in her family. There are 23 total hectares spread out among 5 villages. The domaine is meticulously run with the utmost focus on bringing in perfect fruit. Clos Noly practices sustainable viticulture. The yields at this domaine are routinely 20-30 percent lower than what is allowed in each given appellation allowing Marie-Pierre to craft wines that are rich and powerful while remaining focused with an emphasis on the calcaire rich soils of each terroir. These wines represent absolutely great value and quality.
The Macon-Charnay “Sainte Juste” 2016 is located just North of Pouilly; 100% Chardonnay, stainless steel. Ripe tropical nose with white flowers and bright calcaire; very compact and mineral driven mid-palate with dried apricot and chalk; the finish is persistent and very clean.
