Recommended to me by a friend, I bought a bottle of the Macon-Fuisse not really knowing what to expect. 

What I got was a lovely surprise.  I know I shouldn’t, but I do still judge screw tops… a little.  I can’t help it.  I like the idea of opening a bottle of wine with a corkscrew. 

Well, I unscrewed the Macon-Fuisse and poured a small glass to enjoy late night while I was working on a presentation.  I am always more productive with a glass of wine in hand during the evenings I think.  Especially when I have to work J.

This wine has what I would call a graceful nose, if you can smell smooth, this is what I also get.  On a blind tasting I would immediately think this wine was a Sauvignon Blanc and not a Chardonnay.  On going in a little deeper into the glass I get a distinct sharpness and a little mineral citrus – grapefruit I think.  With my first taste, I found the wine full bodied with a steely, but smooth finish.   It has an abundance of tropical fruit flavors and a sharp clean balance. I would suggest drinking this wine with shell fish or a strong brie or just alone working late.  It all works. 

This is a very approachable wine, which makes it a very drinkable one!  It is also a bit naughty because I seemed to drink more than one glass!  It was all the wine’s doing – honest.

My rating…
