Domaine Perraud, Macon-Villages
Produced from what the Perrauds describe as 'young vines' (they are at least 20-25 years old), this wine shows
remarkable elegance, purity and complexity at a modest price tag.
Winemaking was kept as natural as possible, with wild yeasts used for
fermentation. Malolactic fermentation was allowed to take place in order
to encourage a round, supple feel. The wine rested for six months on
its lees to encourage complexity before blending and then bottling. Part
of the wine was aged in oak barrels for nearly nine months to encourage
a weightier style than the average Mâcon.
Bright yellow in colour with perfumed white flowers and stone fruit on
the nose. The palate is medium to full bodied, with lively citrus
acidity and flavours of fruit salad including melon, peach and a hint of
pineapple. The finish is mineral and long with the fresh acidity
balancing the full fruit nicely.
