As a typically southern Burgundian Chardonnay, Réserve Personnelle Mâcon-Villages offers pure green apple fruit framed in appealing acidity. With upfront and full flavours and a hint of hazelnut on the mid palate, this wine exudes elegance, finesse, and style. Perfectly paired with grilled or baked white fish, chicken risotto, or herb-flavoured Mediterranean vegetables.

About the Producer

Like all good stories, that of Boutinot France is both long and a little bit complicated! Boutinot began as a tiny importer in 1980, specialising in French wines. Paul Boutinot himself began by personally selecting the wines from France, back in the UK he would unload the trailer by hand. And deliver the crates of wines to customers himself. But good things grow and by the end of the decade they had become a bigger and better company. A company that not only sought out great wines but made them too. 10 years later, Boutinot France started in January 1990. The first office was in the middle of the vines in Julienas; perfectly located to navigate the Beaujolais and Macon regions on the quest to make beautiful wines..

Today, Boutinot’s French office has relocated to Macon, and has over 20 employees who take care of production across the whole of France, covering fresh whites and rosés from Gascony, mineral wines from Burgundy, and joyful varietal wines from Languedoc among others. There is no single model to source the wines; instead, a combination of sources are used, from large-scale, high-quality co-ops to small, family growers and single domaines, as well as their own vineyards in Cairanne and Saint-Vérand. Drawing on the expertise of their four in-house winemakers and a network of partner growers, they seek to deliver the highest quality-to-price ratio possible for every wine.

Vineyard and Winery

Boutinot's Mâcon-Villages Réserve Personnelle is a special blend of Chardonnay, sourced from three different vineyards. During vinification the must is cooled to ensure a slow fermentation in stainless steel which allows the development of rich, smooth flavours without the use of oak. There is partial blocking of the malolactic fermentation in one of the component parts to retain a level of bright acidity needed to create balance and poise in the final blend. Once selected, the blend is aged for two months prior to bottling to allow for full integration of the elements to create a harmonious whole. Blending in this way, using the same variety from different plots and adjusting the vinification of each parcel allows for the creation of a hand-crafted, personalised wine with greater complexity and finesse than would be possible working with just one element.
