Mâcon-Igé belongs to the regional appellation Mâcon from the Mâconnais vineyard , that spreads on 3,865 hectares at an altitude varying between 100 and 400 meters above the sea level on brown limestone or calcic soils ; both shallow and deep, clayey or sandy, often mixed with silex pebbles (called chailles).
