Mâcon-Igé

Mâcon Igé wines are produced under the Mâcon appellation within the commune of Igé. The title covers white wines made exclusively from the Chardonnay variety, as well as red and rosé wines produced from Pinot Noir and Gamay.

Igé is a small village located between Cluny and Mâcon in the south of Burgundy. Viticulture here dates back to the Roman period, and was extensively developed by monks in the Middle ages.

To the south of Igé lie the communes of Verzé and La Roche-Vineuse beyond while Azé is to the north. The vineyards of Viré-Clessé begin roughly 5km (three miles) as the crow flies to the northeast.
