Grapes come from parcels within the Côte-Mâconnais, yielding the highest-quality fruit of the harvest.

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

Burgundy’s 2016 began with fickle weather in spring, including frost and hailstorms that demanded a reinforced presence at the vines. Thankfully the chaotic start had no impact on quality of the vintage. Splendid summer conditions followed, bringing ideal conditions for ripening. In the weeks leading up to harvest, the vines benefited from hot, sunny days and cooler nights that allowed for optimum maturity and superb grape quality.

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.
