2005 Domaine Perraud Macon Villages Vieilles Vignes
Macon Villages, Burgundy, France
WB Rating: 86

Alcohol by volume: 13.0%
Price at time of purchase: $10.41 (North Berkeley Wine Imports)
Type: Chardonnay
Principal varietal(s): Chardonnay

At least at this point, this Macon-Villages is a fairly simple Chardonnay, light but flavorful. Some yeasty notes in the attractive aromas along with touches of tropical fruit and lime. Good honest white, but lacking in flavor intensity and bite compared, for example, to the recently tasted Macon Vergisson from Eric Forest. (Purchased in an excellent mixed-case holiday special at North Berkeley. Normal retail price would be somewhat higher.) - HK 2008-02-10
