Region The Mâconnais district lies in the south of the Burgundy wine region in France, west of the River Saône. It takes its name from the town of Mâcon. It is best known as a source of good value white wines made from the Chardonnay grape; the wines from Pouilly-Fuissé are particularly sought-after. Almost all the wine made in the Mâconnais is white wine. Chardonnay is the main grape grown, in fact there is a village of that name in the far north of the region. A little Pinot Noir is made into red Mâcon but only for local consumption. Gamay is grown in the Beaujolais cru of Moulin-à-Vent which extends into the Mâconnais, but has little in common with the wines north of the border.
Producer The Domaine de Rochebin was created in 1921 and is jointly managed by Mickael Marillier, alongside his father Jean-Pierre, and Laurent Chardigny. The three men share the same philosophy and a common approach to their work. The vineyard as a whole is run according to the principles of sustainable cultivation.
Tasting Notes Pale lemon in colour, with citrus and apple notes, a hint of white blossom and faint traces of butter. Apple and citrus predominate on the palate along with a hint of pear, finishing on a lovely streak of steely minerality. A refreshing citric acidity matches the roundness on the palate with fresh fruit flavours lingering on the palate.
Served chilled as an aperitif with hors d`oeuvres, seafood and grilled fish.
