The Vineyeard

Mâcon Villages is made from Chardonnay grapes. The vineyards from the Cellar of the Winemakers of Buxy are located mainly on the two mountain sides of the Grosne river valley, between Saint-Gengoux-le-National and Cluny.

The particularity of the Mâcon vineyards lies in the diversity of its soils and exposure to sun. Its grapes come from calcareous soils with high limestone content. The grapes are grown mostly on brown limestone soils, which favour the chardonnay grape variety.

Aging Process

Tasting notes

A white golden colour turning to straw yellow after a few years, this wine usually opens on citrus fruit (when young) and floral (acacia, honeysuckle and rose) hints. It is supple, dry and fruity; a full-bodied wine, with citrus aromas making it very lively. A wine to be enjoyed!

Accompaniment

The Mâcon Villages pairs easily with a variety of foods. It is an excellent match as an aperitif with olive loafs, as well as with starters and salads. River fish, poultry with cream sauce, dumplings, or Mâcon goat cheeses are all excellent accompaniments for this irresistible wine.
