Henri Perrusset Macon Villages 2014
Year after year, Henri Perrusset, a longtime staple of Kermit Lynch’s wine portfolio, crafts stunning Macons of unusual richness, distinction and minerality. Perrusset’s Macon-Villages conveys the vintage’s small berry intensity alongside crisp, white limestone minerality and the Macon’s textbook kernel of creamed corn and hazelnut-tinged lemon fruit. In fact, the wine’s pungent mineral spine, superb cut and rich fruit core serve to make the Macon perform more like a much pricier Pouilly-Fuisse than a humble Macon-Villages. But that’s to be expected from Kermit Lynch, and this wine will delight fans of authentic, full throttle, uncompromising white Burgundy. Enjoy this beauty now and over the next three years with broiled salmon, grilled swordfish and trout amandine.
