AOP MACON SERRIERES


Nestled on the heights of Serrières, in the extreme south of Burgundy, the Domaine Balandras cultivates, on 9.5 ha, its vines of Gamay, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in the purest Burgundian tradition.

18 000 bottles out of 8 cuvées, mainly red wines typical of southern Burgundy make up the range of the domain.

 

The sparkling wines "Melodies de Bulles" appeared in 2013 and complement the range.

 

Grown on granite soils, Gamay variatals are located on the upper plots of the village of Serrières. Light, fruity and peppery, the red wines are the worthy representatives of the Mâconnais wines.

The white Chardonnay wines are harvested on the communes of Pierreclos, Milly-Lamartine and Igé. Three beautiful communes of southern Burgundy.
