Joseph Drouhin Macon-Lugny 2015

Chardonnay from France - Burgandy
Review Date : 18-Dec-2017
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with some depth, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is softly full and up-front with aromas of white and yellow stonefruits and an amalgam of nutty notes and chalky minerals. The aromatics gently unfold to show good depth and breadth. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is soft and full, with up-front flavours of white and yellow stonefruits and subtle flint, nutty and mineral elements. The flavours are open and accessible, quite mouthfilling, and the wine flows easily along a very fine, textural-threaded line with balanced acidity, leading to a light, nuanced finish. This is a fresh, up-front, easy and flavoursome Macon white with stonefruit, flint and mineral flavours on a light-textured, accessible palate. Match with seafood, poultry and pork dishes over the next 3-4 years. Chardonnay fruit indigenous yeast fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 6-8 months in tank. 17.0/20 Dec 2017 RRP $28.99
