Chameur dès son plus jeune âge, le chardonnay mâconnais rivalise de délicatesse et de saveurs avec les plus grands de la Côte de Beaune… Tout en conservant des prix doux, très doux. More info
The area of Macon, located in Burgundy, is located between the last few steps north of Burgundy and Beaujolais raw land in the south. The name evokes the writer Lamartine, the famous Bresse chicken and of course, white, red and rosé wines. Spread over a strip of fifty kilometers long, the Mâcon vineyards account about 5000 hectares.
The white wines from Mâcon made of Chardonnay, grows well on the siliceous and sandy soils of the region. Rather flattering in its youth, it is marked by floral and fruity notes, with nuances of lemon. To the nose, the best show deeper flavors of almond and hazelnut, typical of the variety, sometimes even enhanced with exotic scents of spices, vanilla and woody as they were or were not aged in oak.
The Reds, minority, are made from Gamay or Pinot Noir, more rarely and are proving light and attractive. Finally, we distinguish between Macon supérieurs (or followed by the name of their town of origin) and Macon-Villages, the most famous are those of Lugny, Chardonnay, Azé and Peronne.
