Bourgogne wines

Mâcon Rouge

100% Gamay, this very old grape variety is nowadays the preferred variety for red wines from the Mâconnais.

Its deep bright garnet red colour with purple highlights delivers a fruity and intense taste of black cherries, juicy blackberries, with subtle licorice notes. You will find sun-drenched fruits in the mouth, with a slightly spicy finish.
