winemaker’s comments / gastronomy –
Dry and easy to drink, lively and charming, this is a fruity wine with a floral scent and a hint of lemon, the Mâcon Villages should be drunk chilled and rather young.
This wine goes very well with a large range of foods including “hors d’oeuvres”, fried or grilled fish, sea food, goat’s milk cheese, poultry.
conservation – The Macon Blanc Villages will be at its best within 5 years, if kept in good conditions of temperature and humidity.
