    Winemaker Notes

    The nose is fresh with delicate notes of citrus, white flowers and honey. The palate is elegant with a rich, rounded mouthfeel, expressive fruits, and refreshing minerality.

    Cave de Lugny is a cooperative of over 250 wine-growing estates and 1,500 hectares within the AOC Burgundy- Maconnais. Controlling approx 1/3 of production of Southern Burgundy and approx 50% of the total production of the Maconnais, Cave de Lugny is the #1 white wine producer in Burgundy.

    As a cooperative, Cave de Lugny has full control over the care and management of its grapes from budburst to bottling. Unlike many of its competitors, who act as négociants, buying grapes from co-ops and growers, Cave de Lugny supports and oversees the growing, winemaking and marketing of members’ wines, ensuring consistent high quality.

    Cave de Lugny makes a range of unoaked Chardonnays that are aged sur-lies and characterized by bright floral aromas, a round mouthfeel and complex mineral flavors imparted by the Mâconnais’ limestone-rich soil.

    Crisp, balanced and delicately floral, Chardonnays from the Macon Villages are often made in the unoaked style and offer a magnificent sampling of what white Burgundy has to offer—without years of waiting and high dollar price tags.

    Within the greater Mâconnais, the Macon Villages wines are those within a few defined and optimally situated villages, either noted by the name Mâcon-Villages or as Mâcon followed by the name of the particular village, for example Viré, Lugny, Azé, Bray or Burgy.

    Commonly vinified in stainless steel or glass-lined concrete vats, these are mostly intended for consumption within a year or two of the vintage, though a few serious Mâconnais producers have turned their focus to smaller yields and barrel fermentation and maturation. Regardless, you can count on Macon Villages whites to be fresh and fruity with citrus and melon flavors, and aromas of white roses, honeysuckle, lemon-grass or fennel.

    This is a great region to explore if you already like California, Australian or Chilean Chardonnay.

    One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
