Decanter World Wine Awards and International Wine Challenge Medal Winner: Domaine Perraud, rising star French Macon Villages Chardonnay 2020: Superb wine—and exclusive Members’ price: case of 12 bottles delivered: vintage change
Silver Medal, Decanter World Wine Awards
Silver Medal, International Wine Challenge
Multi-award-winning Domaine Perraud is a fine example of a young producer striking out on his own with the family’s vineyards to create what will soon be one of the Mâconnais’ most respected domaines. Jean-Christophe’s Mâcon-Villages Chardonnay is really a cut above the rest and displays an attractively clean, green apple fruit character.
Bright yellow in colour with perfumed white flowers and stone fruit on the nose. The palate is medium to full bodied, with lively citrus acidity and flavours of fruit salad including melon, peach and a hint of pineapple. The finish is mineral and long with the fresh acidity balancing the full fruit nicely. A delicious, weightier style than the average Macon.
It goes beautifully with many different foods and is extremely enjoyable alone. Perfect pairing with creamy fish or chicken dishes, mussels and goat’s cheese. One to order now—the Tasting Panel consider it a must-buy and the International Wine Challenge and Decanter World Wine Awards judges agree!
