Mâcon Rouge 2017

  • 75cl bottle

The cheerful aromas of soft fruit, blackcurrant and raspberry make this a relaxed wine. It begins as a rather firm and tight wine but with age becomes supple.

Vineyards

Mâcon rouge is produced on soil that is largely clay and limestone and, in some places, clay and silica with sandstone and granite debris.

Vintage

2017 saw low yields due to hail in the Mâcon region but wines show richness and depth.

Winemaking

Hand-picked grapes undergo the traditional Beaujolais vinification process. Fermentation takes 8 to 10 days.

Enjoy with:

  • Grilled and Roasted Red Meats
  • Pizza/Pasta
  • Casseroles/Stews
  • Mild Creamy Cheeses
Try with a warm puy lentil salad
