Mācon-Villages "La Fontaine"


Vineyards situation

The Mācon Villages area is located in the southern part of Burgundy, close to the Beaujolais area. This appellation is the largest of the Māconnais area, covering about 2 500 ha of vineyards and 43 communes. Forty three villages have the right to produce Mācon Blanc Villages. Mācon Villages are only white wines.


The wines are made from 100% Chardonnay grapes. The limestone subsoil of the Monts du Māconnais are ideal for growing the Chardonnay grapes. Some small areas produce exceptional wines. The Louis Jadot Mācon Blanc Villages is made from grapes from these different areas.

Wine making
