Location

France

Region

AOC M√Ęcon Lugny

GRAPE VARIETY

Chardonnay

 

WINEMAKING

Pneumatic pressing at harvest. Vinification in thermo-regulated vats (temperature regulated between 16 and 18°C). Spontaneous malolactic fermentation. Ageing on fine lees to conserve all the potential of the wine up to bottling time.

 

TASTING NOTE

Golden yellow with hints of green when very young, limpid and bright. Floral and fruity aromas blended together (notes of hazelnut, honey, acacia citrus fruit, and apricot). Very delicate, rich wine, ample, velvety with a slightly spicy savour. Its structure gives it its place in the Macôn-Villages designation and its style approaches that of the Mâconnais vintages.

 

PAIRING

Ideal with game, red meats such as duck with figs and cheeses. Serving temperature around 10°C to 12°C. Ageing potential of 4 to 6 years.
