This region is first-and-foremost a major producer of white wines – one out of every three bottles of white Burgundy comes from here! Influenced by the grape variety but also by the climate in this southernmost region of Burgundy, Mâcon wines can take advantage of numerous hillside locations which are beneficial to good grape maturation. The soils are limestone-clay combinations similar to those found in the Côte de Beaune.
Half of the wine is aged in large 450-liter barrels called “Demi-muids”, while alcoholic and malolactic fermentation take place. No lees stirring. The other half of the wine is aged in stainless steel tanks, to retain the natural freshness of Mâcon wines. This process takes place over a 10 month period, with very light filtration prior to bottling to maintain lively varietal character.
Aromas of white fruits, almond and flowers.
Round, with citrus flavors and supported by good acidity.
