Domaine Manciat-Poncet Cuvee Claude Macon-Charnay is a ripe, luscious Chardonnay from Burgundy in France. The Macon appellation produces a range of wines from the boring to the brilliant. This village wine falls into the top end of the scale.
Claude and Simone Manciat-Poncet used to sell their grapes to other producers, but, in 1979, decided to make their own wines. The wines from their Macon-Charnay vineyards represent great value for money. The grapes are hand-harvested (unusual for this area) and the wine is made to be light, fresh and delicious.
Charnay is a village in the Macon region of southern Burgundy and the appellation laws permit the wine to be labelled as either Macon-Villages or Macon-Charnay.
