The Mâcon Villages area is located in the southern part of Burgundy, close to the Beaujolais area. This appellation is the largest of the Mâconnais area; 43 villages have the right to produce Macon Villages Blanc. The wines are made from 100% Chardonnay grapes. The limestone subsoil of the Monts du Mâconnais is ideal for growing the Chardonnay grapes. The Mâcon Blanc Villages is vinified in stainless steel tanks in order to extract the maximum floral and fruity aromas and freshness. The aromas are very expressive and intense reminding of apples, peaches and pears. After some years it develops aromas of honey. It is usually well balanced in the mouth: acidity together with softness. Mâcon-Chardonnay can match all types of food: spicy, classic white meat but can also be drunk chilled as an aperitif.
