France / Burgundy
Grapes come from parcels within the Mâconnais area, 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.
The 2021 vintage was a challenge for winegrowers right up until the very last day. The only moment of respite came with flowering, which was ideal for fruit formation, and véraison, which was accompanied by sunshine from mid-August. In the end, hard work was rewarded with success. The wines are aromatic, and well balanced.
The wine shows floral, apple and citrus aromas and flavors, with mineral notes; a classic expression of Chardonnay from this appellation.
