Mâcon-Lugny 2011

Region: France / Burgundy / Mâcon
Grapes: 100% Chardonnay

The Mâcon-Lugny appellation is within the Mâcon-Villages area in the southern part of Burgundy, close to Beaujolais. Mâcon-Villages is the largest subregion within the Mâconnais, covering about 6,250 acres of vineyards and 43 separate communes. Mâcon-Villages are only white wines. The small village of Lugny is one of the most famous areas in the Mâconnais, and produces exceptional white wines made exclusively from the Chardonnay grape. Vineyards are situated on the Monts du Mâconnais, whose limestone subsoil imparts ideal characters of minerality, floral complexity and finesse to the Chardonnay grapes.

harvest note

The 2011 vintage in Burgundy was clearly a success! With three times as much rain as normal (130mm) in July and August, the 2011 harvest was thought to be in jeopardy, but it has turned out to be another very good year on the heels of the great last three vintages. Overall, 2011 was a year when vigilance in the vineyard was a necessity, along with the ability to be flexible in harvesting parcel-by-parcel, followed by meticulous sorting.

tasting note

Light, sprightly and easy to drink, this dry wine shows white flower and apple aromas, with a note of lemon.

food pairing

Pairs well with a range of foods, including poultry, pan-fried or grilled fish, and mild cheeses, such as goat’s milk varieties.
