Jean Macle is known by many as the true master of Château-Chalon and his son, Laurent, fully in charge of the estate has succeeded well in living up to his reputation. The rather daunting Madame Macle (Jean’s wife) makes it difficult to secure an appointment, but if you can manage it, it is well worthwhile - you must say you plan to buy a few bottles. The Château-Chalon is amazing, year in, year out and the other whites are interesting too. You should be able to taste the current Château-Chalon vintage and possibly on older vintage too as well as another white.
