Location
Located between the Côte Chalonnaise and the Rock of Solutré, the hills of the Mâconnais region stretch across approximately 40 kilometres and are bordered by the Saône and Grosne rivers in southern Burgundy.
Soil The soil is composed of marl and sandstone overlying limestone substratum, which tends to lend minerality to the wines from this appellation.
Grape variety 100 % Chardonnay.
Vinification Traditional vinification at 20°C in temperature-controlled tanks. The wine is aged on the lees and is stirred while it ages in oak barrels (25 to 30% new oak) for 12 to 14 months.
Robe Brilliant pale yellow in colour with silvery highlights.
Nose Fresh and floral (white blossoms) with a touch of liquorice.
Palate Starts off round and finishes on a slightly anise-saline note. An exquisite wine.
Serve with A perfect match for seafood and delicate fish, white meats and semi-dry goat’s cheeses. Try this Mâcon alongside a filet of bass with citrus fruits, scallop carpaccio with mango or thyme-scented roast chicken with peaches.
Serve at Serve between 10 and 12°C in order to best appreciate all of this wine’s freshness and roundness.
Cellaring potential From 3 to 5 years.
