Winemaking has been a tradition in the Charmond family for three generations, starting in 1950 with only few acres. Today, Philippe Charmond owns and cultivates 8ha in the villages of "Vergisson", Davayé and Prissé. This terroir of the region is ideal for grape growing, with vines situated on south-east-facing slopes to catch the sun. This Macon-Vergisson is vinified 70% in stainless steel vats and 30% in oak barrels; annual production is only 3000 bottles.

The colour is a lustrous pale gold. A subtle nose mixes toasty aromas with dried fruits and white flowers and a refreshingly maritime minerality. On the palate the wine is rich and ripe yet retaining a freshness and an underlying gentle salinity. Notes of freshly churned butter to finish with creamy undertones of fresh hazelnut.

Pair with finger-food like mozzarella sticks or falafel. Also a great match with white fish.

Astonishingly good value, with beautiful complexity and a long, graceful finish.
