Les vins Luzy-Macarez
Luzy-Macarez is a passion project of two childhood friends, Richard Luzy and François Macarez. After years of working as a cellar master at a large winery in Mâconnais, Richard took what he had learnt and started his own business with François, a technician in wine and spirits. They carried out precise work of plot selection in order to best transcribe their philosophy with every single bottle - "to celebrate the taste of the soil and the expression of the grape variety".
The duo only produces Chardonnay. Vineyards are mainly located between Mâcon and Cluny. Soils in the appellations further south are mostly marl-limestone and clay-limestone soils, and clay-siliceous soils on granite and volcanic substrate in further north.
