  • TASTING NOTE: Forget any stereotype you have in your mind about Mâcon; this is a juicy, punchy, white Burgundy, atypically fresh and racy for the region. It’s packed with citrus pith, crunchy nectarine fruit and bright acidity; and it sits at just 11% alcohol. A fascinating beginning to what will surely be an exciting future.
  • ABOUT THE WINE: The village of Bray lies in the north of the Mâcon. This cool area, which also includes Cruzille and Verzé, is one of the later ripening areas of the Mâconnais. The Roc Breïa vines face west and it’s a windy site, so there is little disease pressure. The Chardonnay is drawn from vines planted in the mid-1940s and mid-1970s. In the cellar, winemaking is very simple. The Chardonnay is whole bunch pressed and the wine ferments in used 500-litre barrels. It’s bottled unfined and unfiltered and the only sulphur added is at bottling: a tiny 20 mg/L. Instead of taking the Mâcon-Bray appellation, Dancer has chosen to label the wine Vin de France, so he has no restrictions in terms of picking dates.
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: Roc Breïa is run by the driven and ambitious Théo Dancer, now also the main man at Domaine Vincent Dancer. In 2021, Théo was invited to visit a mature vineyard in the Bray district of the Mâconnais. The vineyard had recently been purchased by two investors, one of whom was the courtier who used to sell the vineyard’s crop in the past. The vineyard (pictured above) is a 10-hectare block on a limestone slope. Dancer immediately saw the potential and agreed to manage the project, but only on the condition that he would control the whole affair. The name of the new project is Roc Breïa. Taking over immediately, with the help of full-time vigneron Bastien Cubillé, Dancer has begun to sculpt the vineyard up to his standards, bringing the soils and vines back into balance, planting cover crops and cultivating inter-vine, etc. In the cellar, winemaking is very simple. The wines are results from a selection of the finest barrels, with Dancer eliminating anything he doesn’t like from the final blend.
