For people who love white Burgundy but not its price, the Mâconnais is a welcome discovery. Some of the best value wines in Burgundy come from Mâcon and in particular, Cave de Lugny, one of the oldest co-operatives in the region.
Cave de Lugny’s vineyards consist of vines averaging 30 years of age and are situated around the town of Lugny
Looking to the future, winemaker Gregoire Pissot hopes for all Caves de Lugny wines to become synonymous with pure, unoaked chardonnay
Mâcon has long been known as a hot spot for good value but thanks to producers like this, it’s now also known for its remarkable quality
Tasting note:Pure shining yellow with golden tints. It exudes intense aromas of fresh white flowers, citrus fruit and honey. The palate displays a perfect balance between delicate minerality and expressive fruit character. Enjoy with seafood, chicken dishes or simply on its own.
