MACON VERGISSON LA ROCHE, Domaine Drouin 2015/16



Aromas and flavours reveal the fruitiness (pineapple, tropical fruits), white flowers (lily, acacia) and mineral (chalk).
The terrain gives the fruit its unique minerality.  Powerful and balanced finish.
It is a Macon from a noble lineage, that suits every occasion with distinction …
To taste between 12 and 14C °.

Installed since 1984 in the municipality of Vergisson in the Mâconnais in Southern Burgundy, we currently operate 9 ha of which 6 ha are in Pouilly-Fuissé, 3 ha in Mâcon appellation.

The grapes for our white wines are Chardonnay, the king grape of Burgundy that is expressed wonderfully on our clay-limestone soils.  It is the variety of various vintages of Pouilly-Fuissé, Mâcon-Bussières and Mâcon-Vergisson.  The small batch of Macon Rouge “Les Bruyeres” comes from the Gamay grape.  A demanding varietal that, done well, provides a very pleasant wine finesse. The age of the vines is 25-65 years.
