2011 Macon Villages Chardonnay
Today’s 2011 Trenel Mãcon Villages Chardonnay is a delightful Burgundian white that our entire tasting panel went crazy for.
Very clean and very balanced, this wine is a refreshing departure from overly oaky and sweet American Chardonnay. Really wonderful as it warms, allow the wine time to evolve and open up in the glass.
Refined and delicate with a complex palate, with flavors that are especially present throughout the long and elegant finish.
For such a young wine, today’s white Burgundy is drinking beautifully!
Evenly concentrated coloration with medium rich golden hues from core to edge.
Clean, light and breezy on the nose with fresh fruit and big limestone. At the end, lime flower and subtle anise round out the aromas.
Very lightweight on entry, the wine settles onto the mid and back palate where it unveils fresh flavors of lime, light underripe green melon, orange blossom and limestone.
Very long, very refreshing and very clean with citrus lingering alongside a wonderful limestone character. At the very end, a hint of subtle brioche adds just the right amount of complexity.
Crab salad would be a remarkably great pairing with this clean wine. A Salmon au Poivre would also be a delightful choice.
