Not a single wine, rather a 'Maison' Jacques Depagneux for Wine Blogging Wednesday #39

Life throws you a wrench sometimes.
My car died on me this evening so instead of opening a couple of bottles from the Maconnais or Cotes Chalonnaises, I stood there waiting for the AAA guy.
Since the battery was not the issue, I had to get the car towed to my trusted mechanic some 20 miles away.
11 pm was here and I barely stepped through the door.
So I decided that for this Wine Blogging Wednesday #39 instead of praising a single wine, I would choose a maison, domaine, negociant (pick your term) from this area.

Let's tip our hat to Jacques Depagneux who offers great things starting with the Domaine du Roure Pouilly-Fuisse for the whites (Chardonnay grapes, bien sur).

Add to that the Clos du Chapitre 'Vire Clesse tracing its origins back to the monks of Cluny plus Domaine des Gatilles Chiroubles.

Thanks to The Brooklyn Guy for challenging us.

La Fin!
