Tasting notes
Beautiful pale gold with silver reflections, the white Mâcon-Vinzelles is characterized by its generous fruitiness (stone fruits with yellow flesh such as vine peach, and apricot) and its notes of tangy confectionery. Despite this notable opulence, inherent in the southern influences of its microclimate, it is indeed a dry wine, with a straight start.
