2022 Mâcon-Villages “Terroir de Farges Vieilles Vignes”

Henri Perrusset
Discount Eligible $27.00
AT CART MAX

In the heart of the Mâconnais lies the hilltop village of Chardonnay, self-professed birthplace of the world-famous variety of the same name. True or not, they do have a strong argument going for them given their namesake. At the base of the hill, in the shadow of Chardonnay, is the tiny village of Farges-lès-Mâcon (population: 222; mayor: Henri Perrusset), which is much less famous yet is a wonderful terroir for textbook, perfectly opulent, floral Mâconnais. We sell out of this wine every year and go back begging for more. If you’ve tried it, I’m preaching to the choir. If you haven’t, it’s never too late to get on the bus!

About The Region

Burgundy

map of Burgundy

In eastern central France, Burgundy is nestled between the wine regions of Champagne to the north, the Jura to the east, the Loire to the west, and the Rhône to the south. This is the terroir par excellence for producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The southeast-facing hillside between Dijon in the north and Maranges in the south is known as the Côte d’Or or “golden slope.” The Côte d’Or comprises two main sections, both composed of limestone and clay soils: the Côte de Nuits in the northern sector, and the Côte de Beaune in the south. Both areas produce magnificent whites and reds, although the Côte de Beaune produces more white wine and the Côte de Nuits more red.

Chablis is Burgundy’s northern outpost, known for its flinty and age-worthy Chardonnays planted in Kimmeridgian limestone on an ancient seabed. Vézelay is a smaller area south of Chablis with similar qualities, although the limestone there is not Kimmeridgian.

To the south of the Côte de Beaune, the Côte Chalonnaise extends from Chagny on its northern end, down past Chalon-sur-Saône and encompasses the appellations of Bouzeron in the north, followed by Rully, Mercurey, Givry, and Montagny.

Directly south of the Chalonnaise begins the Côte Mâconnais, which extends south past Mâcon to the hamlets of Fuissé, Vinzelles, Chaintré, and Saint-Véran. The Mâconnais is prime Chardonnay country and contains an incredible diversity of soils.
