Recognized in 1937, the appellation Mâcon Villages is produced in the south of Burgundy on an area of ​​1336 hectares on clayey-limestone or siliceous terroirs. The Mâcon-Villages , entirely made from the Chardonnay grape, are distinguished by a typically pale gold color with silvery reflections or a light green. Their nose includes floral notes of hawthorn or broom, acacia or white rose, but also citrus, quince and anise. On the palate, the Mâcon Villages can be very fruity, ideal for an aperitif, and it is for that reason that it remained for a very long time the wine of bars. As in many vineyards, the search for a higher quality has allowed the appellation to gain its acclaim. It is now very common to associate on label the name of the appellation Mâcon with the name of the village of production (Mâcon-Loché, Mâcon-Fuissé ...). Wines have on the whole the common characteristic of being dry, sweet, and fruity at the same time. With a good concentration, they are balanced, with the necessary acidity to ensure them a custody of at least five years. The wines from terroirs of several production areas are obligatorily called Mâcon-Villages .   Of a generous nature, the Mâcon-Villages is suitable both on small ovens, as an aperitif and cocktail dinatoire, as on dishes of crustaceans, elaborate fish or white meat in sauce.   Like the wines of Saint-Véran, the wines of the Mâcon Villages appellation are gourmand, charming, and still of an excellent quality / price ratio.
