THE WINERY

Founded in 1929, Les Vignerons de Mancey, is set in the heart of lovely countryside, a few kilometres from Tournus and the Saône River.
The winery's "terroir" sits on the open, rolling landscape of the Mâconnais hills, populated with vineyards, meadows and woods.

Les Vignerons de Mancey currently groups together the production of some 80 wine growers, with 140 hectares of vineyards spread over 8 communes in the Mancey area.  The winery vinifies all the Burgundy grape varieties - Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Aligoté and Gamay, which thrive on the terroirs of the Mâconnais region.

We carefully select the very best terroirs:
"Because not one single stone of their land is like another" ...

This guarantees that wine lovers will find a high quality Burgundy wine with exhilarating fruit, perfect balance and dense structure, in each and every bottle.

{ The curly bracket symbol . . . . } .

The curly bracket symbol { is called an “accolade” in French, a word which also means a friendly embrace.  It is a symbol which unites!

What symbol, therefore, could be more fitting for Les Vignerons de Mancey, uniting some 80 wine growers and 140 hectares?

This symbol is the trademark or logo which appears on our bottles. It is also an affirmation of our vignerons’ shared identity and our quest to express the spirit of the terroir.

 

{Mancey, terroir of nuances and multiple identities}      

The Cave des Vignerons de Mancey has a reputation for Mâcon-Mancey wine.
The Mâcon-Mancey AOC was obtained in 1979 in recognition of the quality of the terroirs in the commune of Mancey, as well as the quality of the wines produced there. The red wine typically shows spicy and peppery flavours and a nice tannic structure enabling it to age well.

The Cave de Mancey has the facilities to vinify the grapes from selected vineyard parcels separately. This important selection work commenced several years ago. It has enabled us to identify the best terroirs and, combined with the dedicated work of our vignerons, to ensure that wine lovers find this exceptional quality reflected in every bottle.

{ An ever more environmentally-friendly quality approach }

Some of the larger domaines, members of the Cave des Vignerons de Mancey, have adopted growing methods known as "Reasoned Agriculture", leading to a specific quality certification.

Reasoned Agriculture requires compliance with specifications which minimize the negative impacts of wine growing and winemaking activity on the environment and on sustainable development.

 

{ Four ranges - different wines for different occasions}    

Les Essentielles:  Les Vignerons de Mancey's flagship range

The idea of producing wines from selected, low-yielding parcels took hold 12 years ago, and was the initiative of a handful of wine growers, aware of the urgent need to improve the quality of the regional appellation wines.
Each vigneron declares the surface area of the parcel he intends to use for the production of "Les Essentielles".
Throughout the growing season, a committee made up of vignerons on the board of directors visits these parcels to check their compliance with the agreed vineyard management specifications.

The harvested grapes are fermented separately and the wines undergo a specific ageing process.

The wines, distinguished by a dedicated bottle and packaging, regularly pick up awards and have quickly built up a loyal customer following.

So, what are "Les Essentielles"? Mancey's “Essentielles” are a range of four wines, the fruit of the close collaboration between wine growers and technical staff, working together under a demanding and unprecedented quality contract.

 

Les Cadoles:  Our local pride

The "Les Cadoles" wines come from selected plots in several domaines.

On the slopes of Tournus and Mancey and elsewhere, you will spy numerous "cadoles", small constructions that served as shelters for the wine growers.  Varying in sophistication, their design is quite unique. You could say they resemble stone igloos!

Thanks to the "Société des Amis des Sciences et des Arts de Tournus" (Friends of the Sciences and Arts of Tournus), these “cadoles” are the subject of an ambitious restoration and preservation programme.

Les Vignerons de Mancey support this work and some of the proceeds from the sale of the "Cuvée des Cadoles" go to the Association.

 

Les Classiques:  A reflection of our terroirs

This is our widest range, made up of a dozen wines, including rosés as well as the newest Burgundy regional appellation, Les Coteaux Bourguignons.

With their attractive pricing, they represent excellent value for money. This is a range of well-balanced, elegantly fresh wines.

 

The Crémants:

Les Vignerons de Mancey produce 6 crémants sparkling wines, including two rosés and two in a sweeter style (demi-sec).

The finesse, concentrated bubbles, and overall quality of our crémants are the result of three factors:

  • Monthly “disgorging” to preserve optimal freshness
  • An extremely long resting period in our cellars after fermentation, sometimes lasting up to 24 months
  • And, of course, the initial quality of the grapes.

The spirit of the terroir sparkles with a thousand tiny bubbles in our Crémant de Bourgogne range, perfect for festive and refined drinking occasions.

 

 

{ Four grape varieties }   

Bourgogne Aligoté

The traditional grape of Burgundy, this variety adapts to all locations, drawing its freshness and vivacity from generous soils and its mineral character from stony, calcareous soils. The traditional partner to the Cassis de Bourgogne, it is the base wine for the famous, popular Burgundy aperitif – the Kir.

 

Mâcon

Some terroirs have not been included in the Mâcon-Villages appellation: ordinary land, land with the ‘wrong’ exposure or simply ignored by the legislators… In these areas, the Chardonnay expresses itself simply and, in some cases, has done so for many years.  Here it produces straightforward, unpretentious wines. Classified simply as “Mâcon”,  these wines express the fruit of the Chardonnay grape. They are delicious as an aperitif or can be enjoyed with some charcuterie and goat's cheese, in good company.

 

Mâcon-Villages

Mâcon-Villages covers a vast territory, with the vineyards facing east or  southwest. The Chardonnay draws minerality from the superposition of layers of different soil types. This minerality can be either subtle and supple, or it can be powerful and structured.. but it always shows style and elegance.

 

Mâcon-Mancey white

Red Mâcon-Mancey has been around for some time. It needed the white equivalent to go with it. This has been the case since the Institut National des Appellations d’Origine (National Institute of Appellations of Origin) recognised that some terroirs are worthy of the appellation name.  These terroirs produce rich, powerful and full-bodied wines.  Our Mâcon-Mancey white comes from the old vines of Chardonnay which go into the "Les Essentielles" wines.

 

Mâcon-Chardonnay

From the 2006 harvest, Mâcon-Chardonnay joined the appellations produced by Les Vignerons de Mancey.  This Chardonnay single varietal wine derives its typical character from the terroir of the village of Chardonnay.  It is the Chardonnay from Chardonnay!

This wine is a little gem from the Mâconnais region, crisp and lively, perfect for aperitif drinking or enjoyed with starters.

 

Bourgogne-Chardonnay

This appellation differs from Mâcon-Villages in its vinification method. Primarily vinified in barrels, the Chardonnay produces full-bodied wines, tending to show good structure and build, and amazing ageing ability.

 

Mâcon Rosé

Gamay proffers up various shades of pink in this wine obtained from a short maceration of the grapes.  A summer rosé, it is great for barbecues by the river (if the sea is not at hand!). If there are beads of condensation on the side of the bottle, then it is at the perfect temperature for its fresh fruit and fruit-drop flavours to be appreciated.

 

 

 

 

Mâcon

The Mâcon red production area contains soils from which the Gamay produces fresh, fruity wines for young drinking with everyday dishes.

 

Mâcon-Mancey red

A Vignerons de Mancey “specialty”, Mâcon-Mancey red comes from vineyards in which the first plots were planted back in 1945.  Some Gobelet-pruned Gamay Noir vines still stretch their arms over the slopes of Mancey, Royer and other communes in this tip of the Mâconnais wine region.  The vines are forced to struggle in the thin clay-limestone soils, the perfect conditions for producing the full-bodied wines which are so typical of this particular terroir.

A specialty? Yes, we think it is safe to say that it is…  People, from the local area and beyond, recognize us and come to us for our Mâcon and Mâcon-Mancey reds.

 

Bourgogne Passetoutgrains

Burgundy, traditionally the land of the "single varietal" wine, breaks its usual habit by mixing two-thirds Gamay and one third Pinot Noir grapes in the vat.  This results in a wine with good structure, fruit, elegance and a big "meaty" character.

 

Bourgogne Pinot Noir

Made from the famous Burgundy speciality, the PINOT NOIR grape, this wine is elegant, delicate and fruity.  It can be "Classique", fresh, fruity and easy-to-drink; it can be a "Cuvée spéciale", from old vines and aged in barrels for one year; or it can be serious and full-bodied, "Essentielle", the result of a meticulous selection of the best terroirs where the producers have had to respect stringent vineyard management specifications. Through each of its wines, the Bourgogne Pinot Noir is a faithful ambassador for a region envied around the world.

 

Givry

Produced in the hamlet of Russilly on the Givry heights, this Givry shows the strength and character of the terroir where its vines grow.  This terroir creates a full-bodied, subtly fruity wine, which will quietly improve after a few years in bottle.

 

 

Givry 1er Cru

Like a jewel set in a casket, the small parcel in the location (lieu-dit) known as "en Choué", planted with the noble Pinot Noir, produces beautifully ripe grapes, whose small berries create the exceptionally refined character of a premier cru recognised for the delicacy of its fruit. Production is small, only 4-5 barrels, depending on the year.

 

Crémant de Bourgogne

The "traditional" method which works wonders in Champagne, also works wonders in Burgundy, and has done for many years.  All of the Burgundy grape varieties can be used for its production, although the Gamay may not exceed 20% of the blend and the Aligoté, 70%.  Whether it is a "Blanc de Blancs" from Chardonnay and Aligoté, a "Classique" from the four varieties, or a "Blanc de Noirs" from Pinot Noir and Gamay, Crémant de Bourgogne makes a delicious aperitif and is perfect for festive and refined drinking occasions.

The finesse, concentrated bubbles, and overall quality of our crémants are the result of three factors:

  • Monthly “disgorging” to preserve optimal freshness
  • An extremely long resting period in our cellars after fermentation, sometimes lasting up to 24 months
  • And, of course, the initial quality of the grapes.

The spirit of the terroir sparkles with a thousand tiny bubbles in our Crémant de Bourgogne range, perfect for festive and refined drinking occasions.

 

 

{ Four grape varieties }   

Bourgogne Aligoté

The traditional grape of Burgundy, this variety adapts to all locations, drawing its freshness and vivacity from generous soils and its mineral character from stony, calcareous soils. The traditional partner to the Cassis de Bourgogne, it is the base wine for the famous, popular Burgundy aperitif – the Kir.

 

Mâcon

Some terroirs have not been included in the Mâcon-Villages appellation: ordinary land, land with the ‘wrong’ exposure or simply ignored by the legislators… In these areas, the Chardonnay expresses itself simply and, in some cases, has done so for many years.  Here it produces straightforward, unpretentious wines. Classified simply as “Mâcon”,  these wines express the fruit of the Chardonnay grape. They are delicious as an aperitif or can be enjoyed with some charcuterie and goat's cheese, in good company.

 

Mâcon-Villages

Mâcon-Villages covers a vast territory, with the vineyards facing east or  southwest. The Chardonnay draws minerality from the superposition of layers of different soil types. This minerality can be either subtle and supple, or it can be powerful and structured.. but it always shows style and elegance.

 

Mâcon-Mancey white

Red Mâcon-Mancey has been around for some time. It needed the white equivalent to go with it. This has been the case since the Institut National des Appellations d’Origine (National Institute of Appellations of Origin) recognised that some terroirs are worthy of the appellation name.  These terroirs produce rich, powerful and full-bodied wines.  Our Mâcon-Mancey white comes from the old vines of Chardonnay which go into the "Les Essentielles" wines.

 

Mâcon-Chardonnay

From the 2006 harvest, Mâcon-Chardonnay joined the appellations produced by Les Vignerons de Mancey.  This Chardonnay single varietal wine derives its typical character from the terroir of the village of Chardonnay.  It is the Chardonnay from Chardonnay!

This wine is a little gem from the Mâconnais region, crisp and lively, perfect for aperitif drinking or enjoyed with starters.

 

Bourgogne-Chardonnay

This appellation differs from Mâcon-Villages in its vinification method. Primarily vinified in barrels, the Chardonnay produces full-bodied wines, tending to show good structure and build, and amazing ageing ability.

 

Mâcon Rosé

Gamay proffers up various shades of pink in this wine obtained from a short maceration of the grapes.  A summer rosé, it is great for barbecues by the river (if the sea is not at hand!). If there are beads of condensation on the side of the bottle, then it is at the perfect temperature for its fresh fruit and fruit-drop flavours to be appreciated.

 

 

 

 

Mâcon

The Mâcon red production area contains soils from which the Gamay produces fresh, fruity wines for young drinking with everyday dishes.

 

Mâcon-Mancey red

A Vignerons de Mancey “specialty”, Mâcon-Mancey red comes from vineyards in which the first plots were planted back in 1945.  Some Gobelet-pruned Gamay Noir vines still stretch their arms over the slopes of Mancey, Royer and other communes in this tip of the Mâconnais wine region.  The vines are forced to struggle in the thin clay-limestone soils, the perfect conditions for producing the full-bodied wines which are so typical of this particular terroir.

A specialty? Yes, we think it is safe to say that it is…  People, from the local area and beyond, recognize us and come to us for our Mâcon and Mâcon-Mancey reds.

 

Bourgogne Passetoutgrains

Burgundy, traditionally the land of the "single varietal" wine, breaks its usual habit by mixing two-thirds Gamay and one third Pinot Noir grapes in the vat.  This results in a wine with good structure, fruit, elegance and a big "meaty" character.

 

Bourgogne Pinot Noir

Made from the famous Burgundy speciality, the PINOT NOIR grape, this wine is elegant, delicate and fruity.  It can be "Classique", fresh, fruity and easy-to-drink; it can be a "Cuvée spéciale", from old vines and aged in barrels for one year; or it can be serious and full-bodied, "Essentielle", the result of a meticulous selection of the best terroirs where the producers have had to respect stringent vineyard management specifications. Through each of its wines, the Bourgogne Pinot Noir is a faithful ambassador for a region envied around the world.

 

Givry

Produced in the hamlet of Russilly on the Givry heights, this Givry shows the strength and character of the terroir where its vines grow.  This terroir creates a full-bodied, subtly fruity wine, which will quietly improve after a few years in bottle.

 

 

Givry 1er Cru

Like a jewel set in a casket, the small parcel in the location (lieu-dit) known as "en Choué", planted with the noble Pinot Noir, produces beautifully ripe grapes, whose small berries create the exceptionally refined character of a premier cru recognised for the delicacy of its fruit. Production is small, only 4-5 barrels, depending on the year.

 

Crémant de Bourgogne

The "traditional" method which works wonders in Champagne, also works wonders in Burgundy, and has done for many years.  All of the Burgundy grape varieties can be used for its production, although the Gamay may not exceed 20% of the blend and the Aligoté, 70%.  Whether it is a "Blanc de Blancs" from Chardonnay and Aligoté, a "Classique" from the four varieties, or a "Blanc de Noirs" from Pinot Noir and Gamay, Crémant de Bourgogne makes a delicious aperitif and is perfect for festive and refined drinking occasions.
