Chardonnay, Macon Villages Cuvee Prestige, Moillard
The most southerly region, and the largest of Burgundy, is the Mâconnais. The hills of Macon form a group separated by parallel faults and are either North / North East or South / South West facing slopes. They extend over 40 km to the west inline with Tournus to Mâcon. Thanks to the powerful abbeys of Cluny and Tournus the vineyards have been established here since Gallo-Roman times. It’s much warmer than the rest of Burgundy and thus offers the most fleshy and plump of all white Burgs.
