Wine information
Sylvaine and Alain Normand’s domaine is located in the Mâconnais village of La Roche-Vineuse, which literally translates to “The Vinous Rock”. They began their estate in 1993 but has only in recent years began bottling their own wines rather than selling fruit to the local cooperative. More dense and rich than the straight Mâcon La Roche-Vineuse, the Normand's Vieilles Vignes displays aromatic spice, orange and toasted brioche notes. Despite its notable roundness on the palate, it is still lifted and light to the touch and finishes on Burgundian tell-tale minerality.

Robin says "The Mâconnais is the most southerly area of Burgundy. It tends to make wines that are plump and richer than those from the Côte d'Or or Chablis. This "old vine" cuvée embraces this sub-region's traditional style but also still offers poise and freshness. Appealing but with some depth."
