Produced in southern Burgundy, Macon-Villages is 100% Chardonnay. It is most often un-oaked or lightly oaked, and represents a the pure, balanced expression of the Chardonnay grape grown on limestone-based soils. It's an inexpensive antidote to the highly alcoholic and oaky fruit bomb Chardonnays made all over the world.
|From the discovery of the Tautavel man to the Roman hegemony in Narbonne, via the Visigoth occupation and the Cathar heresy, Languedoc-Roussillon’s past is steeped in rich history. At the beginning of the 20th Century, a phylloxera epidemic, coupled with overproduction and widespread fraud, wrought havoc for winegrowers, who subsequently decided to revolt. Since the 1950s the wines of the Languedoc have become increasingly refined, and the best estates now produce wines of truly exceptional quality. Gerard Bertrand is determined to drive this progress even further, through continued innovation and by creating internationally-renowned appellations and wines.
