ADD

A benchmark of 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 Maconnais. 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. –Anthony Lynch
