Production area

Grapes for this regional appellation from the Mâconnais are harvested in Lugny commune. It covers 3 868,27 ha (including 3 345,82 ha in Chardonnay).

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.
