ABOUT: Jean-Claude Boisset was radically transformed with the arrival in 2002 of viniculteur Grégory Patriat, one of the best winemakers of his generation in Burgundy. Gregory prefers to work with organic growers, as he finds they produce better fruit and specialises in making wines from ‘lieu-dits’ or tiny plots of vines, something which accounts for the limited production of most of his wines. This wine is from Igé, one of the Mâconnais’ top villages. Château London refers to the specific vineyard or ‘lieu-dit’. The grape is a clone of Chardonnay, Chardonnay-Muscaté, which gives the typical structure, poise and freshness of Chardonnay together with the aromatic expression of Muscat.
