Story of the wine:
The Maconnais is a large district in Burgundy, south of the fabled Cotes de Nuit and Beaune and north of the Beaujolais region between Dijon and Lyon. Virtually all its production is of white wine with chardonnay the main grape. There are 26 villages which can add their name to Macon to be separately identified for their better quality. Domaine Gilles Noblet is a small estate of 14.5ha owned and run by Gilles Noblet, the fourth generation is running the estate.
Grape(s): 100% Chardonnay
Area: From vineyards in the commune of Fuissé
Macon is a good value white from Burgundy and when from selected villages such as Fuissé it is better still, as this wine shows. A firm, slightly herby savoury nose is followed by a rounded, creamy texture on the palate and nicely balanced and structured finish.
