Chateau de Nancelle.

This is a very refreshing style of Macon produced with 100% Chardonnay. It is unoaked which helps the excellent quality of the grapes that are grown on the Chateau show through. This white wine has apple and pear aromas on the nose which follow through onto the medium bodied palate.

Patrick Corsin

Burgundy is famous around the world for its Pinot Noir, but a small part to the south of this region specialises in Chardonnay. The Mâconais is resplendent with rolling limestone hills and, in contrast to the more famous Pinot Noir appellations, it enjoys long sunny days during summer with the sounds of cicadas breaking through the mid-day quiet.

 

Here on the outskirts of the Mâcon Villages lies the estate of Château de Nancelle. Established in 1985 and grown on the site of a historic castle, the Corsin family have been producing wonderful Mâcon whites over the past few years. It’s a tight knit family affair at this small, rural winery with husband and wife Patrick and Nathalie joined by their son, Pierre.

 

Like all of our best winemakers, their ideology is minimal interference in the winemaking process letting the beautiful and dramatic terrains of this part of Burgundy come shining through their wines. They use natural yeasts only and practice viticulture raisonée which means they adopt environmentally sustainable techniques on the land.

 

The beauty of buying wine from the Mâcon is that it remains a relatively little known white wine region. It does not have the pulling power of Chablis, the Loire Valley or New Zealand for example. This means that the wines here do not command an artificially high price and winemakers cannot trade on the reputation of the region as a whole. They have to work hard to develop a name for themselves which is precisely what Patrick and Pierre of Chateau de Nancelle are doing.
