macon villages

Christmas meal in Finsbury park with Catherine and Lucy.

Lucy has some experience in the wine industry and opened several bottles of lovely white burgundy for the meal

A white wine made from chardonnay in the Macon-Villages appellation in southern Burgundy.

A region that is particularly suited to chardonnay grapes due to some excellent sheltered areas lying beneath the rolling limestone hills of the region.

These wines can be compared as junior versions of the regions more famous Pouilly Fuisse.

A straw yellow colour with a soft fruity nose.

Lovely stone fruit palate balanced with a great refreshing acidity and a soft melon body.

Great chardonnay!
