The Macon-Villages is sourced from two vineyard parcels that are directly below and above Corsin’s finest Pouilly Fuissé’s vineyard, Les Chailloux. The difference in appellation is a question of elevation; one is too low on the hillside, one too high to be considered Pouilly Fuissé. Yet the soil is the same as Les Chailloux, a chalky marl that lends incredibly complexity and length to one of the best Chardonnays in France.
The Macon Villages has a pale green shine to it, with just beautiful aromas of ripe, green apple touched with a stony minerality. The mid-palate is concentrated and layered with fruit with a finish that goes on forever. This is classic white Burgundy, honed and complex and just terrific at any table.
