The Oddbins Take

***Commended at Decanter World Wine Awards 2014***


An absolutely delicious classic white Burgundy, with the broad, exuberant charm typical of its 100% Chardonnay-based content. This is a lively number, which benefits from its relatively high acidity yet presents a decent, full-bodied flavour, reminiscent of apples gently warmed by the sun. A really good, mouth-watering, easy drinking dry white.

The Cave de Lugny is a major player in the Mâcon and southern Burgundy. The co-operative works with over 250 growers who between them own 1500 hectares in the region. This unoaked Chardonnay is sourced from the village vineyards of Lugny. The grapes are both hand and mechanically harvested before being gently pressed and fermented. The wine is matured on its lees in stainless steel vats for a minimum of six months during which time full malolactic fermentation can happen. Eggs and dairy are not used in the winemaking process.
