Located between Cluny and Mâcon, in the South of Burgundy, the little village of Igé shelters an historical vineyard. The Romans where the first to grow the vines there followed then by the monks in the Middle Age who gave a tremendous impulsion and recognition to the Mâconnais wines.
En Thuzot is a 4.9 Ha vineyard facing south at an altitude of 275 m.
On a limestone subsoil, the vines are cut under the simple Guyot pruning system also locally called “the Mâconnais tail" involving growing the vines in an arc shape.
The grapes are hand harvested, sorted and then pressed in a pneumatic press. After a static cold « débourbage » (settling) lasting 24 hours, our white wines start their alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel vats under controlled temperatures. Maturing on fine lees.
