Domaine Chapuis has around 12 hectares of vineyards in the Mancey area of Mâcon in Burgundy. The wine does not come into contact with wood and is bottled in the early spring following the harvest. This magnificent Mâconshows off the fruitier side of the Chardonnay grape, with lovely citrus aromas and lots of apricot and pear fruit on a palate. Buy this if...you're looking for a classic, great value Burgundy.

Not normally a Chardonnay fan, but oh so surprised, fresh, full of life and no oak in sight... Very good. Caroline

The Producer

Domaine Chapuis owns 12 hectares of vineyards in the Mancey area of the Maconnais, at the southern tip of Burgundy. The soil is clay-limestone with an eastern exposure, allowing for a good exposure to the morning sun. Insecticides have not been used for eight years and treatment against disease is only used when absolutely necessary.

The Winemaker

Harvesting is carried out by hand and the harvested grapes are transferred into large vats where temperature controlled fermentation takes place and lasts about 12 days. After fermentation the red wine is run off and transferred into barrels where it ages for 12 months. The white is aged in vats and bottled in the spring following the harvest.

The Region

The Maconnais, at Burgundy's southern tip, produces some of the region's best value whites and an increasing number of reds from limestone soils that suit the Chardonnay grape. The climate is slightly warmer than in the northern reaches of the region, resulting in softer, earlier-drinking styles.

Gorgonzola stuffed Chicken Breast wrapped in Pancetta

Chicken and Chardonnay make for a very tasty match but if you're serving the chicken with these additional ingredients, remember the extra saltiness that the pancetta and cheese will bring to the dish - plump for a ripe, fruity white such as southern Burgundy Chardonnay to contrast with the salty tang.

Antipasti Skewers

These quick and easy light bites call for a fresh white wine with plenty of fruit flavours to contrast with the salty prosciutto. Try juicy Domaine Chapuis's Macon-Mancey to start.

Cream of Pumpkin Soup

A smooth, creamy soup which works well with both reds and whites - try with a soft, spiced red or a medium-bodied white – French Chardonnay and Chenin are two worth a try.
