Production area

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.

Origins

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.

Varietal

100% Chardonnay

Vinification and maturing

Vinification takes place in thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks. The wine is partially aged in tanks and partially aged in barrels.
