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.

2017 vintage
Harvest Note
The 2017 vintage for Burgundy was strong, however, there were some challenges. Vines flowered late and were affected by frost, resulting in yields below the regional average. Despite that, the grapes were in a perfect state of health, fostered by increased levels of rain in August, by the harvest in early September and were picked when at excellent ripeness levels.
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.

About the Grape

Chardonnay
Though it has a distinctive profile, Chardonnay reflects other factors such as soil composition and vinification technique. Chardonnay is a reliable, hardy and prolific vine whose only real vulnerabilities are frost and uneven development of fruit.
