Appellation: Mâcon Villages
About The Producer
The Auvigue family has been working its vineyard for generations, closely following traditional Burgundy methods. They ave a long history in the Mâconnais. The grapes come from family estates or are carefully selected from the best areas of the Pouilly Fuissé, Saint Véran and Mâcon appellations. To allow each parcel to remain true to itself, Jean-Pierre and Michel Auvigue always adapt the vinification process to the climate.
Terroir & Vineyard Practices:
The fruit is sourced from vineyards in the Mâconnais. The soil composition is sedimentary rocks from the Cretaceous period that are clayey limestone.
With a golden robe, its delicate aromas are fruity and floral, with hints of hazelnut, and a good length in the mouth. Its character is soft and fleshy. This wine can be served at the beginning of the meal or with selfish, fish or goat cheese.
The grapes are hand-harvested when fully ripe and pressed immediately. The juices then go through static settling. Only the clear juices are vinified in 100% stainless steel tanks. The bottling is done in spring depending on the harvest in order to preserve the coolness and the natural fruity of this cuvée.
