Mâconnais is the southernmost sub-region of Burgundy. The Mâcon-Village

appellation covers 3000 ha on 43 different villages. Domaine de la Rochette is located in Milly-Lamartine, where the famous French poet and politician

Alphonse de Lamartine was born. Milly-Lamartine is one of the most famous

villages in Mâconnais for its high-altitude soils made of white limestone. The

climat ‘Montagne de Cra’ is a high-altitude terroir (400 m) of white, stony

limestone, shallow and well-drained. Not surprisingly, this exceptional terroir

of thin limestone produces top-class white Burgundies.



The colour is a bright light yellow. The nose is seductive with notes

of acacia flower, citrus fruit, pear and saline touches. The palate is

fresh and taut, with a tight, well-balanced texture that is enhanced

by a harmonious generosity. The marine finish, delicate but

concentrated, is underlined by citrus notes.

Serve between 12 and 15°C in fine crystal glasses. A nice pairing

can be sought with salmon flavoured with fennel and a dash of olive



Grape: Chardonnay (100%)


Region: Mâcon-Milly-Lamartine, France

Viticulture and Winemaking: Produced from environmentally-friendly vine-growing, the grapes are harvested at perfect maturity, then the pressing is mechanical ‘old-fashioned’ to promote the extraction of antioxidants and polyphenols from the skins. The juices are then 'settled' by simple gravity at 12°C for 24 hours. The fermentation takes place slowly in350L oak barrels and the subsequent ageing will last 10 months on fine lees, before bottling preceded by a light filtration. Natural winemaking methods, patient and very little intervention, allows the terroirs to express themselves with much precision and purity. Gently pressed, settled for 24 hours. Ambient yeast fermentation in used, Burgundian barrels with no added SO2. Aged on the lees in used oak barrels. Malolactic fermentation. Aged for 14 months in barrels prior to bottling.
