Reviews and Ratings

Mâcon Villages is the original un-oaked Chardonnay. This lively dry white wine provides wonderful apple and citrus notes on the nose and a palate with hints of fruit blossom and minerals. This expressive Chardonnay is perfect for summer patio sipping or as a match with salads, seafood, fish or poultry. Try it with quiche or grilled chicken Caesar salad.

A couple of really cool things (that’s official wine talk) about Patriarche’s Mâcon Villages are that it comes finished with a srewcap (to preserve freshness and bottle consistency) and they have put “UNOAKED CHARDONNAY” right there on the front label, so there is no confusion (or oak).

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
