Mâcon always provides impressive value amongst Burgundy wines and Lugny’s Les Charmes is one of the finest. It’s from the renowned, family owned Albert Bichot. IWC Winemaker of the Year, Albéric Bichot has crafted a superb, creamy peach, fresh white.
"Vibrant acidity, good depth and fine tension. I love the cohesion and intensity of this Mâcon"
Neal Martin Wine Advocate for 2015
Lugny is one of the top villages of Burgundy’s Mâcon region and Albert Bichot’s delicious Les Charmes is one of its most distinctive wines. What’s more, Les Charmes also offers outstanding value – rare for Burgundy. The large, single vineyard nurtures a special Chardonnay clone known as Musk which promotes exceptional aromas, further enhanced by the local chalk and limestone soils. An idyllic south-southeast orientation and the age of the vines, around 40 years, adds to the wine’s ripeness and intensity. Several growers make wine from this vineyard but Albert Bichot is one of the best. Fresh, bright, pure and well balanced, Les Charmes makes a lovely accompaniment to seafood, chicken and creamy risottos. Serve in large bowled glasses.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...

queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
