The expression of a terroir Mâcon-Lugny Chardonnay is produced exclusively in the municipality of Lugny. This appellation, comprising 163 ha of vines, is a virtual monopoly of the Cave de Lugny. Indeed it owns more than 90% of this vineyard, which allows it to carefully control the quality. The vineyard consists of plateaus and hillsides oriented mostly south / southeast, on a clay-limestone dominant soil. The average age of the vines is about 35 years old. 

Systematic malolactic fermentation. 
Aging on fine lees to preserve the full potential of the wine until bottling. 

NOSE: intense aromas of ripe fruit (peach, apricot, exotic fruits) 
MOUTH: rich and full-bodied, balanced, with a mouthfeel that retains a very nice freshness 
Food pairing: Aperitifs, Fish, seafood, sushi, poultry - Goat cheeses
