Macon Pierreclos Jean-Claude Thevenet et Fils, 2005
This wine was one of the first I reviewed [November 13, 2007]. It has gained some maturity over a nine-month period, but it hasn't lost any of its charm. It's a medium yellow with aromas of green apples, spearmint and fresh pears. Has a refreshing zesty feel on the palate and typical Macon Chardonnay flavors. On the second night the wine shows some nutty maturity...but still fresh and lively. This wine is what Macon is all about--unpretentious but full of personality.
