2016 Mâcon-Villages

Henri Perrusset

Thirty years ago, as Adventures on the Wine Route was going to press, Kermit encountered a young Mâconnais vigneron at what was essentially a truck-stop restaurant in Fleurie. Upon learning that Kermit imported French wines to the United States, the vigneron, Henri Perrusset, invited him to come taste wines at his domaine. Kermit was impressed by the pure, pleasurable, unpretentious whites—wines that fittingly reflected the humble, farm-country atmosphere of that initial meeting. Ever since, we have imported Henri’s whites, which remain among the most stellar values for Chardonnay from Burgundy you can find. Crisp and mouthwatering, with hints of citrus and stone fruits, Henri’s Mâcon-Villages showcases a masterful balance of acidity and creamy roundness. An excellent match for salads, seafood, or chicken, it is also completely thirst-quenching served on its own.

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.
