Tasting Notes: Burgundy Pinot Noir is very lively on the palate, with good structure and a soft, smooth frame.

There's a tête-à-tête to its tannins and fruit, in which the wine's chewy character balances its secondary aromatic impulses.

The wine has a rich mouthfeel and meaty flavor that is described by the word "vinous." It has a refined, elegant character and a smooth, light mouthfeel structure.

Food Pairing: Enjoy with salads, meat pies, poultry or boiled beef

Chateau: "Located in the heart of the Mâcon wine region, Chateau Saint-Germain is situated on a hilltop 450 m above sea level, overlooking the Saone plain, close to Azer.

The village is famous for its prehistoric caves.

The winery was founded in 1921 but has been dedicated exclusively to viticulture since 1972.

Jean-Pierre MARILLIER represents the third generation to manage the Domaine, handing it over to his son Mickaël in 1991.

Today, Mickaël manages 46 hectares of vines together with his wife Marie-Pierre and Laurent Chardigny, who became their partner in 2008 and handles the vinification.

The vineyards, much of which were once part of the Cluny Abbey estate, are managed according to the principles of sustainable viticulture, with plots covered with grass.

The diversity of terroir allows the winery to grow four Burgundian grape varieties: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Aligoté and Gamay.
