Mācon-Villages Les petites pierres APPELLATION VILLAGE
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 Les Petites Pierres is a specific blend from different grapes of various origins.
This wine is vinified in stainless steel tanks in order to keep its fruit and freshness.
Winemaker's comments / Gastronomy
Dry and easy to drink, lively and charming, this is a fruity wine with a floral scent and a hint of lemon. This Mācon-Villages is very tense and fresh.
It can be paired with a large range of food including terrines, fried or grilled fish, sea food, goat cheese, poultry etc ...
At its best when drunk young and chilled, this wine can be aged 3 to 5 years according to the vintage.
