Macon wines are light, crisp, fresh, fruity, and floral. When young, they are appreciated for their vitality, freshness, and tartness. These easy-going wines are synonymous with pleasure and celebration. Simple to understand and appreciate, they are not only attractive, but also represent the sort of pleasure one can enjoy every day, at an outdoor lunch, as an aperitif with friends, with a picnic on a river bank, etc.
For most people, the Chardonnay grape varietal is one of the quintessential white wine grapes.This relatively neutral grape has the fantastic ability to carry much of its terroir in the bottle, resulting in a fascinating range of flavors and styles. Chardonnay is one of the few white wine grapes which is well suited to aging, as can be seen in some of the excellent produce consistently coming out of Burgundy, and elsewhere in the world. With everything from buttery, creamy characteristics to vibrant tropical fruit notes, Chardonnay will never cease to surprise and impress.
