Mâconnais travel guide: Six of the best wineries to visit

☆ Bret Brothers & La Soufrandière, Vinzelles
La Soufrandière wines come from the Bret family vineyards, retrieved from the local co-op in 1998, now organic and biodynamic; Bret Brothers wines are from grapes grown locally under contract. Lively, long-lived wines.

☆ H Domaine Barraud, Vergisson
Crisp, elegant, lightly oaked Pouilly- Fuissé and St-Véran from small parcels around Vergisson. Highlights include St-Véran en Crèches and Pouilly-Fuissé en Buland, from 78-year-old vines.

☆ Domaine de la Croix Senaillet, Davayé
Brothers Stéphane and Richard Martin make crisp Davayé Mâcon with instant citrus charm, sold under the Prince of Wales’s Highgrove label, and discreetly oaked Pouilly-Fuissé and St-Véran with impressive spice and sinew.

☆ Merlin, La Roche Vineuse
Fine whites and spirited reds from the founders of Les Artisans Vignerons de Bourgogne du Sud. Don’t miss the quaffable La Roche Vineuse Maçon and powerful Clos des Quarts Pouilly-Fuissé.

☆ Jean-Pierre Michel, Clessé
Jean-Pierre gives a warm welcome, offering plump, keenly priced Mâcon-Villages and lively Viré-Clessé, some oaked, some not.

☆ Pascal & Sylvie Pauget, Ozenay
Standouts are Pascal’s funky Mâcon Rouge and plump Mâcon Blanc, grown in the tiny vineyard enclave of Préty.
