Wine tasting
  • Tasting Note
    Pale yellow in color, Macon Villages 2008 reveals a nose that is very developed and aromatic, with notes of honey and acacia blossoms. It is broad and balanced, and the finale is lightly minerally. This wine has great length and can be enjoyed immediately. Tasted July 8th, 2009.

    • 2004 Mâcon-Villages - Evening Standard - March 1st, 2006 :Excellent-value chardonnay from one of Burgundy's most reliable producers : crisp, fresh, citrussy fruit, with a touch of richness. The 2003, if there are any bottles left, is slightly fuller.
