Perrusset Macon-Villages 2011 A good Macon is a staple amongst staples for those who have been around wine for a while. Back in the day it out-sold California Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio with ease. Perhaps its lost a little steam since then but the pleasures of this full-flavored but balanced Bugundian Chardonnay still hit the spot. Apple and pear fruits are lifted by snappy acicity and augmented by honey and whitle flowers. Rich but taught, this is the ying and yang that makes Macon a wine you can enjoy multiple glasses of in multiple settings.
One word best describes this golden-hued wine's nose: classic. Medium bodied, almost rich, yet, anything but cloying. Hints of clay and white pepper entice - while a savory, almost saline aroma makes one's impatient mouth water for the first sip. The flavor explosion begins nearly immediately - perfectly full bodied, this is a perfectly ripe golden delicious apple in liquid form. Perfect acidity persists from start to finish. This unfiltered beauty sees no oak – however, we’re confident the wine's lush body will appeal to lovers of the oaked style, as well. Vibrant, alive, exceptionally complex and balanced.
