Citrus nose with a good overall balance, the acidity being counter-balanced by the roundness and fat. The finish is fresh, both fruity and flowery with a few roasted notes. Great with white meat and poultry in cream sauce or freshwater fish.
Macon Chaintre wines are those produced under the Macon appellation within the communes of Chaintre, Chanes and Creches-sur-Saone. Chaintre also produces white wines under the prestigious Pouilly Fuisse title. Macon is a generic appellation for red, white and rose wines from the Maconnais sub-region of southern Burgundy. However, a number of communes within its catchment area have been recognized as sources of higher-quality wine and may append their names to that of the appellation on their labels. While all of these communes may use their names on white wine labels, only two-thirds of them produce red and rose wines of sufficient quality to earn this privilege. The Macon Chaintre title covers white wines made exclusively from the Chardonnay grape variety.
