Mâcon-Villages 2014

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

Grapes come from parcels within the Côte-Mâconnais, yielding the highest-quality fruit of the harvest. Vineyard soils have a high percentage of chalk and limestone, which imparts mineral character and nuance. Mâcon-Villages is vinified with no oak contact to retain the elegant aromas and clean, fresh character that this region is prized for.

harvest note

2014 Autumn and winter were particularly mild, with good levels of rainfall. Splendid weather conditions in March led to early, vigorous vine growth. During this early part of the growing cycle, the weather stayed dry and the few frosts that arrived in March and April caused little damage. Intensely sunny weather during early June brought on the flowering, which came early since bud-break had taken place a few weeks before. Flowering came on fast, right across Burgundy, from north to south. At the end of June, a violent hailstorm hit several areas, particularly in the Mâconnais and Côte d’Or. Jadot vineyards in Beaune and in Pommard were affected, reducing yields. Summer saw heavy periods of rainfall during August. Veraison began at the end of July, and the growth cycle slowed, pointing towards a harvest starting in early September. The dry weather returned at the beginning of September, bringing with it a North wind that benefited the grapes. Good amounts of sunshine helped to speed ripening.

tasting note

The wine shows bright white flower, apple and citrus aromas and bracing, fresh, clean fruit on the palate, with mineral notes. This is a classic expression of Chardonnay from this appellation.

food pairing

Poultry, shellfish, grilled firm-fleshed fish such as swordfish, and salads.
