Wine Review

I believe the Henri Perrusset Mâcons should be on every wine list. They are perfect as an aperitif and with so many first courses. It’s the best way to start any evening. - KLWM

This is a super Macon displaying good texture as well as lovely honeysuckle-infused fruit with notions of lemon zest and white peaches and surprising flavor intensity. The vintage’s good acids give the wine definition and zestiness. Drink it over the next several years. -Robert Parker


Wine Notes

Harvested by hand, grapes are gently pressed, the must is racked by decanting, wines are never chaptalized, fermentation occurs naturally with indigenous yeasts in temperature-controlled cuves, malolactic fermentation begins in the Spring with the help of the bacteria present in the lees, wines age on their lees for 8-10 months in stainless steel cuves before bottling
