Henri Perrusset, Macon-Villages, 2011, Burgundy, France
This Chardonnay is fairly translucent in the glass with just a touch of darker gold. The nose is dominated by lime, graham cracker crust, and pine sol. This is a medium-bodied and crisp wine with a slight oily texture. It's a clean crisp classic with a hint of rock candy sweetness on the mid-palate. Kermit Lynch once again delivers a nice understated balanced effort but somehow right now it's leaving me with something to be desired. I mean its pairing quite nicely with a solo night of season 2 of Friday Night Lights and Pepperidge Farm Salted Pretzel Milano Slices cookies. Still I'd rather be with a good friend and a plateful of Willapa Bay oysters.
