The Mâcon-Lugny appellation area is located in the south of Burgundy. The vineyard ""Les Crays"" lies in Saint-Gengoux-de-Scissé, 30 km north of Pouilly-Fuissé and 15 km east of Cluny at an altitude of 300m Its western exposure enables to keep some freshness in this warmest part of Burgundy.
History and Tradition : the oldest signs of vines for the Mâcon-Lugny appellation date from the early part of the tenth century. In 916 some records mention the donation, by the CLUNY abbey, of an estate located in Saint-Gengoux-de-Scissé. The origin of the word ""Crays"" comes from the celtic term ""cracos"" meaning ""stony hill"". This medieval term in Burgundy is associated to stony screes and alluvial cones forming a very good substratum for the vine. It mainly reveals ""premiers crus"" wines, thus among the best terroirs.
The soil: clay and chalk dating from the Jurassic era are very favorable to the cultivation of the Chardonnay grape.
