The vines of Mâcon-Chaintré grow at the most southerly tip of the Mâconnais hills. Benefiting from the optimum exposure, the vines of Mâcon-Chaintré grow on the gentle east-facing slope at between 180 and 218 meters above sea level. The climate, with its southerly influences, creates some extremely beneficial conditions for the growth cycle of the vines. The vines grown on a landscape carved with clay mixed with calcareous limestone rocks.
Fermented in stainless steel, aged on its lees for a minimum of six months and is bottled without any oak ageing.
The nose is delicately expressive, with citrus notes (lemon, grapefruit), tropical fruit, almond blossom and white rose that bring an aromatic complexity. Its body, length, and balance render a beautiful and well-rounded wine. Pairs well with goat cheese, grilled chicken, fish dishes, or is lovely as an aperitif.
