Chardonnay is at home here since it take its name from an ancient Gallic Village in the Maconnais region. The soils are excellent for the vines which find adequate moisture in the clay and nourishment deep down in the limestone
The harvest is brought in to a schedule based on the progress of ripening in the plots. The juice is extracted slowly at low pressure by pneumatic pressing to preserve the integrity of the fruit. Filtering at the end of the process ensures the wine is as clear and bright as possible.
Cellar Master's Notes
Clear yellow to pale gold. The nose plays a floral melody of mayflower and acacia. The attack is aromatic, lively and clean. This wine can be enjoyed now.
Serving and accompaniment advice
Avoid chilling this wine because it would spoil it; cool it naturally to serve at 11-13C. The Macon Chardonnay is equally expressive before as with a meal and has a fondness for chicken, deep-fried food, warm goat's cheese salad and of course ripe cheese
