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.
Mâcon rouge is produced on soil that is largely clay and limestone and, in some places, clay and silica with sandstone and granite debris.
2017 saw low yields due to hail in the Mâcon region but wines show richness and depth.
Hand-picked grapes undergo the traditional Beaujolais vinification process. Fermentation takes 8 to 10 days.
