This is a bona fide Goedhuis favourite and a wine that we have been buying for decades. Plenty of floral aromas with notes of nectarine and honeysuckle. On the palate this is a lovely expression of an unoaked Chardonnay from the Mâcon region, clean, pure and bright. A wine of charm, appeal and harmony with hints of peach and tangerine and a delicate seam of freshness on the finish.
Lying to the south of the Cote Chalonnaise and the north of Beaujolais, the town of Macon gives its name to wines produced from vineyards scattered among the surrounding villages. The climate is warmer than the Côte d'Or giving wines greater exposure to sun, less rain and reduced risk offrost. The vast majority are fresh, approachable whites made from Chardonnay. Reds and roses are also made principally from Gamay and a tiny amount of Pinot Noir. A quality level up from basic Macon, a total of 43 villages have the right to use the Macon-Villages appellation or to add the name of their village (e.g. Macon Montbellet) to the appellation name.
