After the Selosse champagne, we began the meal with a wine from a part of Burgundy not so well known, a Macon-Village.
This wine is made by Jean Thevenet, in the Domaine de la Bongran, and the name is "Cuvée Levroutée".
"Levroutée" is an old french word which means, the colour of the little hare. Here, it means that the winemaker waits the grape give this colour for the harvest (late after the harvest for the others white wines from Burgundy region).
It is not a dry wine, but a half-dry wine.
The cork is ok, and not altered after 11 years!
The colour is very nice, a golden yellow very intense...
The nose is very expressive, we feel the late harvest, it smells a little bit the surmaturation. After, it reveals beeswax, candied fruits and honey. It is complex and very expressive!
The palate is amazing, it is not so massive in the mouth and the sugar is not so present. It is very fresh, very present in the mouth, with a long finish. We find again candied fruits, honey and beeswax.
It is a really good wine, very interesting, from a region not so well known.

We ate with this wine a risotto with spinach, lemon zest and scallops!
