Located in the south of the wine-growing region of Burgundy , between the towns of Tournus and Macon, the Mâconnais vineyard covers an area of ​​approximately 5,600 hectares and stretches for about 50 km. Its width does not exceed 10 kilometers. Even if the three colors of wines exist, the Mâconnai s terroir is undeniably a terroir of great white wines from Chardonnay. The latter accounts for nearly 80% of the area's vines. The Gamay and Pinot Noir varieties also share the production of red and pink wines, with a very wide domination of Gamay. To the north, the Mâconnais mountains alternate between forested peaks and valleys in which the cultivation of the vine prevails. They are the result of the collapse of the plain of the Saone, in the prolongation of the limestone slopes of the Côte de Nuits and the Côte Chalonnaise To the south, towards the village of Solutré and its very famous "Roche", the hills rise towards magnificent slopes and rocky cliffs. The soil is made up of granite soils at depth, covered by alternating marls, limestones and sandstones. White wines are particularly mineral and floral, with citrus and fruity notes, sometimes of almond and hazelnut. The most beautiful cuvées are raised in oak barrels: wines then take notes more gourmand of vanilla and grilled almond. In addition to the regional wines grouped under the Appellation Mâcon, or Mâcon Villages, five communal wines produce white wines among the best in Burgundy: Pouilly-Fuissé, Pouilly-Vinzelles, Pouilly-Loché, Saint Véran and Viré-Clessé. These white wines are really to be discovered. It still enjoys affordable prices and are of an incredible aromatic richness. Discover real treasures with the wines of Mâconnais on www.defivin.com
