Cave de Lugny is a cooperative of over 250 wine-growing estates and 1,500 hectares within the AOC Burgundy- Maconnais. Controlling approx 1/3 of production of Southern Burgundy and approx 50% of the total production of the Maconnais, Cave de Lugny is the #1 white wine producer in Burgundy.
As a cooperative, Cave de Lugny has full control over the care and management of its grapes from budburst to bottling. Unlike many of its competitors, who act as négociants, buying grapes from co-ops and growers, Cave de Lugny supports and oversees the growing, winemaking and marketing of members’ wines, ensuring consistent high quality.
Cave de Lugny makes a range of unoaked Chardonnays that are aged sur-lies and characterized by bright floral aromas, a round mouthfeel and complex mineral flavors imparted by the Mâconnais’ limestone-rich soil.
Crisp, balanced and delicately floral, Chardonnays from the Macon Villages are often made in the unoaked style and offer a magnificent sampling of what white Burgundy has to offer—without years of waiting and high dollar price tags.
