Mâcon-Lugny

Blanc

Situation

L'aire des Mâcon Villages est située dans la partie sud de la Bourgogne, juste au Nord du Beaujolais. Cette appellation recouvre 2 500 hectares sur 43 communes, et existe uniquement en blanc.

Caractéristiques

Le Chardonnay est le seul cépage produisant le Mâcon Lugny. Les sols des Monts du Mâconnais possèdent une grande profondeur de sédiments avec marnes ou argiles, idéal pour ce cépage.

Vinification

Le Mâcon Lugny est vinifié en cuves inox afin d'en extraire un maximum d'arômes floraux, fruités et de fraîcheur.

Dégustation / Accords mets-vin

Le Mâcon Lugny est un vin léger, vif et charmeur quand il est jeune, quelque soit le millésime. Il se caractérise par un parfum floral et fruité, avec quelques touches d'arômes citronnés. Il s'accordera très bien avec des huîtres, coquillages, charcuterie et fromages de chèvre.

Conservation

Servi frais, il sera parfait et très agréable à boire dans sa jeunesse, mais pourra également vieillir 4 à 5 ans dans de bonnes conditions de température et d'humidité.

White

Vineyards situation

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, covering about 2 500 ha of vineyards and 43 communes. Mâcon Villages are only white wines.

Characteristics

The small village of Lugny is one of the most famous areas in the Mâconnais producing exceptional white wines (made from 100% Chardonnay grapes). The vineyards are located on the "Mont du Mâconnais" where the limestone subsoil is ideal for growing the Chardonnay grapes (brown calcic soils). The yields are low in order for the grapes to reveal the nuances of each terroir.

Wine making

The Mâcon-Lugny is vinified in stainless steel tanks in order to keep its floral, fruity aromas and freshness. Aging takes place on fine lies and partial malolactic fermentation is conducted in order to keep a good balance between acidity and mellowness.

Winemaker's comments / Gastronomy

Light, lively and charming, especially when young and whatever the vintage, Mâcon-Lugny is often recognizable by its white flowers and apple aromas with a hint of lemon. It may 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 cheese, poultry etc ...

Preservation

Ideally, this wine should be drunk young within 3 years after vintage. If kept in good conditions, the Mâcon-Lugny can even be drunk after 5 years of age and even more.
