One of the jewels of southern Burgundy, the Mâcon
appellation is in the heart of the Mâconnais, in the Saône-et-Loire department. These vineyards cover about 3,000 hectares (7,413 acres) spanning 26 villages: Azé, Bray, Burgy, Bussières, Chaintré, Chardonnay, Charnay-lès-Mâcon, Cruzille, Davayé, Fuissé, Igé, Loché, Lugny, Mancey, Milly-Lamartine, Montbellet, Péronne, Pierreclos, Prissé, La Roche-Vineuse, Saint-Gengoux-le-National, Solutré-Pouilly, Uchizy, Vergisson, Verzé, and Vinzelles.
The hills of the Mâconnais shape this land, where soils of silica, clay, and sand help the Chardonnay grape reach its full potential.
Mâcon produces exclusively white wines, renowned for their richness and the aromatic palette that is a calling card of the illustrious Chardonnay. They are generally easy-drinking and versatile without sacrificing quality. First-class examples of Mâcon are offered by such producers as Maison Verget, Domaine Louis Jadot, and Domaine La Soufrandière-Bret Brothers.
