The Mâconnais is located in Southern Burgundy and takes its name from a town called Mâcon. The hilltop vineyard which produces Belena is called “Les Roches” which means “The Rocks”. The vines are situated on the western side of the Saône river where clay, silica and granite dominate the soils. These contribute to this wine’s mineral freshness, and zest.
The name Belena is a reference to a famous statue located in the beautiful city park of Beaune, the wine capital of Burgundy. This piece of art embodies natural grace, equilibrium, harmony with nature, and delicate, gentle seduction.
This is a classic expression of unoaked chardonnay that balances supple richness with refreshing acidity. Notes of pear and peach transition to a minerally citrus finish. Enjoy with salads, roast chicken and creamy cheeses.
