THE INEVITABLE

LES PARCELLAIRES

Château London

MÂCON-IGÉ

This locality has been promoted by the estate since 1978 and is one of the most prestigious and most wellknown of the whole Macon area. It’s one of the first localities to be used in the Macon area since the beginning of the seventies. This vintage is very representative of the white wines of the Macon area. Aromas of ripe fruits, roundness, minerality and balance turn it into a fine wine for appetizers as well as for fish and prepared starters.
