Maconnais Wine

The Maconnais wine-producing area in the south of Burgundy is centered around, and named after, the provincial town of Macon. The area produces a considerable quantity of wine, specializing in white wines made from Chardonnay, and a smaller quantity of red wines made from Pinot Noir and Gamay.

Unlike the Cote d’Or to the north, where a densely-planted strip of vineyards runs roughly north-south through the countryside, the vineyards of the Maconnais are more sparsely planted, and interspersed with land dedicated to other forms of agriculture. The landscape here is one of rolling limestone hills, bordered in the east by the Saone river as it flows south to meet the Rhone river just outside Lyon. The Maconnais climate shows signs of its proximity to the Rhone valley, with warmer average temperatures, lower rainfall and, perhaps most significantly, less risk of vine-damaging spring frosts.

The southern end of the Maconnais overlaps slightly with the northern edge of the Beaujolais region, itself officially a part of the greater Burgundy wine region, but often treated as separate.

The Macon appellation itself covers white, red and rose wines from across the region. A number of communes within the appellation’s catchment have been recognized as sources of higher quality wines, and may append their name to that of the appellation, such as Macon Lugny.

Macon-Villages is a title reserved for white wines, while Primeur and Nouveau are suffixes which may be added to fresh-styled rose and white wines released shortly after harvest. To be exact, the law stipulates that these wines may be released thirty-eight days before the third Thursday of November in the year of harvest. The term Superieur may be added to the titles of red or white Macon wines, denoting that they contain a slightly higher alcohol level, brought about by specific quality-focused production techniques.

In 1999 Vire and Clesse, formerly named villages of the Macon appellation, were granted their own appellation Vire-Clesse, specifically for their high quality Chardonnay-based wines. This new appellation joined the longer-established white wine appellations Pouilly-Vinzelles, Pouilly-Loche and Pouilly-Fuisse and the larger Saint-Veran appellation which was introduced in 1971 to cover many wines previously labeled as Beaujolais Blanc.
