Seattle Wine Blog

This blog is dedicated to commentary on all aspects of wine, especially short entries to help you find the best wines without the usual hype and spin. These are my frank, independent opinions, usually based on tasting wine at a public event, off the shelf or at the winery.

Wine Of The Week - 2005 Drouhin Macon Villages

Much fruitier than the Louis Jadot Macon Villages, this is another one of those rare French delights available in the supermarket. Pale green with hints of citrus and pear in the nose, this wine is fresh, slightly tart, but with balancing body and green apple flavors. Acerbic and intelligent, you might expect this one to be wearing wire-rimmed glasses and you know it could talk back, but it is a good companion and a good bicyclist! Thin, wiry, reasonably powerful, but with a hint of roundness in the middle (about $12 in supermarkets). Oh, and, yes, this is the same Drouhin family that makes Domaine Drouhin in Oregon.
