The Clos de Condemine is located in the commune of Charnay-lés-Mâcon, roughly 3 kilometres from Mâcon. This splendid, gently sloping nine-hectare site lies between the old borough of Charnay and the TGV Station at Mâcon-Loché. Half of the area is allocated to Chardonnay vines. Cultivation here combines modernism, by using modern methods of vine work, and tradition, by manual harvesting.
Luquet's Clos de Condemine is a recent development. In fact, many years ago, Clos de Condemine was an entire estate with its own vineyards and its own wine. After the spread of the Phylloxera virus, the vines were attacked, and then uprooted, giving place to other crops.
When taken on by Domaine Roger Luquet in January 1984, Clos de Condemine consisted of only 3200 sq. metres of vines. Planting began in March 1984 and continued until March 1987 to produce an area of 4.30 hectares. With three years of hard work and determination, we have been successful in recreating this vineyard.
It is on this siliceous (silica-rich) soil, very slightly undulating and exposed to the South-West, that the Chardonnay vineyard extends and gives you the Mâcon-Villages you know so well.
Today, some 35,000 bottles are produced every year and bottled at Domaine Roger Luquet.
Mâcon-Villages "Clos de Condemine", generously fruity and light, will accompany all your entrées. This is a wine that drinks well young, or you can keep it for 3 years.
