Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
After a careful selection of grapes from small parcels in the region (from vines over 20 years old), they are gently pressed and undergo temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel vats (40% maloactic) where the wine remains until bottling.

Interesting Facts
Within a natural isosceles triangle formed by Mâcon in the south, Tournos in the east and Cluny in the west, the noble and eminently Burgundian chardonnay grape reigns as absolute monarch due to the chalk-rich soil that gives distinction to its white wines. This is the southern part of the world-famous province of Burgundy, with its gently rolling hills and lush vineyards, so dear to the French romantic poet and statesman, Lamartine. The author, born in Mãcon, spent his youth in the picture book Mâconnais wine village of Milly. It is in the same area that Georges Duboeuf was born and raised. The white wines known as Macon-Villages come from some 40 different villages that lie in the north and west of macon an the tranquil Saone River. The native chardonnay grapes produce lively and delicate wines overflowing with charm.
