Mâconnais

About

Mâcon lies 45 minutes by autoroute to the south of Châlonsur- Saône. It is closer to Lyon than Beaune. For a style of white wine sometimes confused with Chablis, it is worth noting that there are 219 kilometres between the two cities, making for real differences in climate. In simple terms, there is greater fruit ripeness here and less piercing acidity.

The quality hierarchy in the Mâconnais starts with generic Mâcon, which may be red or white. Mâcon-Villages is a step up, applying to white wines only.

The top status, again for white wines only, is conferred on the 26 communes who may use their village name after Mâcon.

Mâcon-Verzé

Verzé is a village to the north west of Mâcon. Sheltered by hills, it enjoys views over the Saône river, a tributary of the Rhône.
