Tasting notes

This Mâcon-Lugny "Les Genièvres" 2016 reveals a pale golden colour. The nose reveals intense aromas of white fruits, elderflowers and muscat notes. The palate is full with a sweet scent of mandarin.

Viticultural notes

The village of Lugny is located high up in the South of the Mâcon region. It has a great reputation for its white wines which has made Mâcon famous. It is well known that the village of Lugny, with its limestone soils and warm climate, produces the most coveted white wines of the region. The vineyard of « Les Genièvres » is one of the best. Maison Louis Latour selects the best grapes of this village, which thanks to its terroir, was the only village planted with Chardonnay 30 years ago.
