2015 Mâcon-Villages

Henri Perrusset

2015 Mâcon-Villages  Henri Perrusset - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

A benchmark producer in our portfolio for almost thirty years now, Henri Perrusset continues to impress with his reliably refreshing, affordable, and all-around delicious Chardonnays from the heartland of the Mâconnais. After so many consistent vintages, we enjoy a relationship of mutual trust with Henri, and he is even kind enough to let us taste through each tank of the new wine every year in order for us to get first dibs on what we like best, for our very own blend.
       In 2015, a vintage characterized by full-bodied wines with ripe, concentrated fruit, the challenge proved to be retaining the characteristic liveliness in Henri’s white—that crackle of bright acidity that keeps things thirst-quenching. Tasting through the fruits of Henri’s labor proved very reassuring: while certain tanks exhibited a broader, creamier, more exotic persona than others, all of the raw material displayed snappy minerality beneath layers of succulent Chardonnay fruit.
       In the end, there was very little blending to be done, as Henri did the hard work for us: he crafted yet another lovely Mâcon-Villages with that perfect balance of stony nerve and mouth-coating fruit that has made this a go-to, crowd-pleasing white since 1988.

About Burgundy

In eastern central France, Burgundy is nestled between the wine regions of Champagne to the north, the Jura to the east, the Loire to the west, and the Rhône to the south. This is the terroir par excellence for producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The southeast-facing hillside between Dijon in the north and Maranges in the south is known as the Côte d’Or or “golden slope.” The Côte d’Or comprises two main sections, both composed of limestone and clay soils: the Côte de Nuits in the northern sector, and the Côte de Beaune in the south. Both areas produce magnificent whites and reds, although the Côte de Beaune produces more white wine and the Côte de Nuits more red.

Chablis is Burgundy’s northern outpost, known for its flinty and age-worthy Chardonnays planted in Kimmeridgian limestone on an ancient seabed. Vézelay is a smaller area south of Chablis with similar qualities, although the limestone there is not Kimmeridgian.

To the south of the Côte de Beaune, the Côte Chalonnaise extends from Chagny on its northern end, down past Chalon-sur-Saône and encompasses the appellations of Bouzeron in the north, followed by Rully, Mercurey, Givry, and Montagny.

Directly south of the Chalonnaise begins the Côte Mâconnais, which extends south past Mâcon to the hamlets of Fuissé, Vinzelles, Chaintré, and Saint-Véran. The Mâconnais is prime Chardonnay country and contains an incredible diversity of soils.

Every three or four months I would send my clients a cheaply made list of my inventory, but it began to dawn on me that business did not pick up afterwards. It occurred to me that my clientele might not know what Château Grillet is, either. One month in 1974 I had an especially esoteric collection of wines arriving, so I decided to put a short explanation about each wine into my price list, to try and let my clients know what to expect when they uncorked a bottle. The day after I mailed that brochure, people showed up at the shop, and that is how these little propaganda pieces for fine wine were born.—Kermit Lynch
