Georges Duboeuf Macon-Villages

Georges Duboeuf Macon-Villages 750ML    
Sku: 2672

Within a natural isosceles triangle formed by Macon in the south, Tournos in the east and Cluny in the west, the noble and eminently Burgundian chardonnay grape reigns as absolute monarch due to the chalk-rich soil that gives distinction to its white wines. This is the southern part of the worldfamous wine province of Burgundy, with its gently rolling hills and lush vineyards, so dear to the French romantic poet and statesman, Lamartine. The author, born in Macon, spent his youth in the picture book Maconnais wine village of Milly. It was his love for the young and pretty Elvire that triggered his literary career. During his extremely active life, Lamartine devoted his energies to his dual vocations of poet and political figure. The white wines known as Macon-Villages come from some 40 different villages that lie to the north and west of Macon and the tranquil Saone River. Hillside slopes provide ideal exposure to the sun, and provide excellent ventilation and drainage. The native chardonnay grapes produce lively and delicate wines overflowing with charm, especially in their youth. Whatever the vintage year, they are full of subtle fruit and floral aromas, with a fresh lemony toneenchanting in their simplicity and natural elegance.
