Ropiteau Nobles Macon- Lugny
The terroir in the Mâconnais is quite different than that of Burgundy’s northern regions. Here it is clay, silica or granite-based. It is particularly because of these differences in terroir that the wines made from the Chardonnay grapes harvested in this region have a mineral freshness about them that is a delight for those who like a change from the warmer more honeyed flavoured white wines of the Côte d’Or just north of the Mâconnais.
Clear and shiny goldfish yellow, with green hints when young. Fresh and complex with flavours of white flowers and dried fruits with subtle notes of acacia. Medium-body, rich and balanced wine with a slightly spicy finish.
Mâcon-Lugny may be served with mixed salads, sushi, poultry and veal in cream sauce, creamy risotto with meat, poultry or fish and goat cheeses.
