Mâcon is sort of a transition zone between the glorious wines of the Côte d’Or and the lively juiciness of Beaujolais. With the Beaujolais grape Gamay here you get light and fruity deliciousness. It’s not dark or heavy but light and appealing, with ripe red fruit aromas. A perfect social sipper or party wine, it’s also great slightly chilled. A lot of fun for this price.
