Fresh Macon with muscat, apricot & exotic fruits. Rounded mouth feel. Medium bodied.
Tasting Notes: Appealing, fresh Mâcon from the old vines found in the villages of Viré and Clessé. Partial malolactic fermentation and 8 months ageing on fine lees deliver aromas of muscat, apricot and exotic fruits and a round, medium-bodied palate.
From the villages of Viré and Clessé, the main crest is a limestone formation rising above marls of the Lias series. The base rocks consist entirely of upper Jurassic limestones. The territory of Clessé includes marls of the lower Jurassic Lias. 2018 was an ideal vintage with good quantity and even better quality.
The grapes are pressed and a controlled, cool fermentation takes place immediately in stainless steel tanks. Malolactic fermentation is only partial to retain some of the crispness. Bottling happens after 8 months.
