Winemaker's comments / Gastronomy

Dry and easy to drink, lively and charming, the wine shows nice reflects, sometimes slightly green reflects. It's a straight wine with a touch of acidity and a nice minerality. The aromas remind of dried grass. This is a fruity wine with a floral scent and a hint of lemon, the Mâcon Villages should be drunk chilled and rather young. This wine goes very well with a large range of foods including "hors d'oeuvres", fried or grilled fish, sea food, goat's milk cheese, poultry.

Preservation

The Macon Azé will be at its best within 5 years, if kept in good conditions of temperature and humidity.
