Macon Villages AOC 2009 (George Brichon)
Tasted 14/02/11, ABV 13%. ca. £9 UK retail, Marks and Spencer. A simple co-operative Maconnais wine, not my usual tipple as I find these 'cheap' white Burgundies poor value for money and often uninspiring. This one doesnt really change my view but in all honesty is not bad. It's quite young and is probably best drunk thus - pale straw colour, damp nettles and grass on the nose, nice balance of citrus fruit and oak perhaps a little acid, short finish. Enjoyable as a food wine. from 2011, 14/20.
