Mâcon Fuissé

55 years old

The grapes come from the regional appellation area of Mâcon in the South of Burgundy. Soil : Clay and limestone with predominant limestone. 100% Chardonnay. Guyot pruning with different seasonal processes in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches).

The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted out when picking the grapes. They are lightly pressed then in a pneumatic press at a low pressure to get a slow extraction.

After a gentle racking of the must, the wine is put in French oak casks of 500 liters (10% of new oak) for both of alcoholic and malolactic fermentations with wild yeasts and agedon fine lees during 11 months. A month before the bottling, the wine from the different barrels is put in a stainless steel tank to make the blend. The wine is finally fined and lightly filtered before bottling it according to the lunar calendar ("fruit” day).

Fresh and mineral wine.

Very nice in aperitive. With sea food or fish.
