Grapes for this regional appellation from the Mâconnais are harvested in 43 communes within the delimited area of the Mâcon-Villages appellation which covers a surface area of 1 884,65 hectares.
The terroir in the Mâconnais is quite different than that of Burgundy’s northern regions. Here it is clay, silica or granite-based. It is particularly because of these differences in terroir that the wines made from the Chardonnay grapes harvested in this region have a mineral freshness about them that is a delight for those who like a change from the warmer more honeyed flavoured white wines of the Côte d’Or just north of the Mâconnais.
Vinification takes place in thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks. The wine is partially aged in tanks and partially aged in barrels.
COLOUR : Beautiful golden colour with green tints.
NOSE : Elegant and subtle, yet very expressive with herbal and floral aromas such as lemon, mint and honeysuckle.
PALATE: Fresh attack. Good balance. Soft and round with good acidity and the same herbal and floral flavours as found on the nose.
Mâcon-Villages may be served with mixed salads, sushis, poultry and veal in cream sauce, creamy risotto with meat, poultry or fish and goat cheeses.
