Why this wine made the cut…
Mâcon may be a somewhat less heralded area of Burgundy, but the wines often punch above their weight like this one...

GRAPE VARIETAL(S)
Chardonnay
100% Shar-do-NAY
Chardonnay may be the most versatile white wine grape, often seen as a blank canvas. It displays various flavors and aromas depending on where it is grown and more specifically, how it is made. It can range in Palate Character from Bright & Crisp to Rich & Full depending on the climate. It is also particularly malleable and highly affected by winemaking choices like as malolactic fermentation, lees stirring, barrel fermentation and ageing practices.

Henri Perusset

Mâcon, Burgundy

Since beginning in 1987, Henri Perrusset has rarely produced more than 4,000 cases of Mâconnais chardonnay in a given vintage, a far cry from the larger cooperative wineries prevalent in the region. 

Henri Perusset HarvestHenri Perusset Harvest

Henri Perusset farms just under eight hectares of chardonnay vines in his village of Farges-lès-Mâcon. This relatively warmer region in Southern Burgundy has uniquely dense and fossil-ridden limestone soils that provide excellent drainage. Hand-harvested grapes are fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless-steel vats where they were also aged  before bottling.

Henri Perusett’s wines are balanced, precise, and marked by zippy minerality, ripe citrus, and orchard fruit flavors.
