Alain & Sylvaine Normand produce wines typical of the appellation.

Mâcon La Roche Vineuse, cuvée Vieilles Vignes (old vines) 2009.

Working together on the estate since 2009, Alain and his wife, Sylvaine, produce lively, fresh Mâcon wines, typical of the appellation. They constantly review their methods and processes, committed to producing wines of better and better quality. This wine from old vines was vinified and aged in barrels yet the oak is very mellow, and the wine shows rich, dense substance solidly supported by a backbone of fresh acidity. Nice balance. Around €9.

Macon La Roche Vineuse Vieilles Vignes (old vines) 1997

Beautiful bright, pale yellow colour. Powerful on the nose, with lovely, light, ripe fruit aromatic aromas, characteristic of this vintage. Rich and fat on the palate, underpinned by perceptible acidity. A real treat!

La Roche Vineuse Promesse 2009**

Awarded one star last year, this wine, produced by Sylvaine and Alain’s daughter Marion and son Thomas, picked up two stars this year. By the way this 2009 impressed the jury, it would appear that our two apprentice winemakers are making good progress. Deep yellow gold, from the glass, this Promesse releases perfumes of honey, acacia flower and candied quince. Big on the palate, the wine is a model of balance and elegance. The orange and candied lemon produce an apple-tart like finish. “A real gem! I love this wine”, summed up one member of jury, blown
away by the wine. He recommends waiting between five and ten year before drinking (50cl bottles). One star for the 2009 white (€5-8; 20,000 bottles), described as a “real Mâcon” by the jury.

DECANTER

DECANTER

Uplifting, vibrant and beautiful aromas of stone fruit, minerals, citrus and ripe pear. Defined and focus palate with an excellent texture, harmonious oak and a refreshingly rewarding finish. It has a clear minerality backed up by a nice richness.

Esus 2008
Very fruity with a touch of vanilla, this forty-five year old Pinot from the Mâcon region has slightly wild aromas.
It can be drunk now and has enough substance for it to be enjoyed for another three years.

Mâcon La Roche Vineuse red 2009
Full, with soft, chewy fruit. A delicious Mâcon terroir wine, which can be enjoyed this autumn with an oven-baked andouille (smoked, pork tripe sausage).
