Cooperative winemaking in southern Burgundy’s Mâconnais traces its origins to the early portions of the 20th century, where a group of small family grape farmers banded together to share in the burden of acquiring expensive winemaking tools and equipment. Since that time, they have shared a united passion for extracting and sharing the secrets of their land with wine lovers around the world. The diverse and intriguing terroirs of the Macon offer some of the most delicious and profound wine values you will discover anywhere in (or near!) Burgundy. Mâcon white, in particular, offer impressive minerality and complexity at relatively humble prices, when compared to the lofty price tags adorning bottles from the neighbouring Côte d’Or. Whether you’re new to aging and cellaring wine, or looking for a delicious and balanced bottle to enjoy this evening at the table, you’d be well-served to spend a bit of time exploring these fascinating and impressive selections.
