our wines
Mâcon Azé 2013
Grape variety
100% Chardonnay

Burgundy - France



Type of appellation
Regional - 4.50 hectares (11.12 acres)


The vines had been planted in 1986 and they are the highest of the Azé village. SouthEast exposure on a limestone terrace. Lot of sunshine.

Winemaking and aging
Ripe grapes are hand-harvested then pressed in a pneumatic press, racking after 24 hours. Aging is made 90% in stainless steel tanks and 10 % in oak barrels. The alcoholic fermentation is made 100% in stainless steel tanks. The wine is bottled in Burgundy Traditional bottles. The cork is marked with the estate’s name and the vintage.

Tasting notes
Beautiful gold pale color with bright green tints. The nose develops notes of exotic fruits (litchis), dry herbs and eucalyptus aromas. In the mouth, the wine is fresh, fruity, minty with some mineral and flint notes. It also develops saline notes. The wine is persistent with a great final.

Food and wine pairings
Our Mâcon-Azé 2013 will perfectly pair with poultry in a sauce, shellfishes (which would stand out the mineral aromas) and grilled fishes.

Service and cellaring
It can be served from now at 11 à 13° C or kept in cellar during 3 to 5 years.
