Mission Briefing

Codename:

Youthful Complexity

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!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Evenly concentrated coloration with medium rich golden hues from core to edge.

Smell:

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.

Taste:

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.

Finish:

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.

Pairing:

Crab salad would be a remarkably great pairing with this clean wine. A Salmon au Poivre would also be a delightful choice.
