Antonin Rodet Mâcon-Villages 2007
A super and affordable Burgundian Pinot Noir. The grapes are hand and mechanically harvested then totally destemmed. The must and the grapes are then fermented 12 to 15 days in temperature controlled, open vats. The cap is punched down twice a day during the alcoholic fermentation. Te wine is matured in stainless steel tanks, then bottled in traditional Burgundy bottles. A deep garnet-red with purplish tints, it has aromas of black fruits (cherry, blackcurrant) and liquorice. The palate has notes of pepper and ash. The tannins are elegant. Serve at 12-14°C with grilled red meats, roasted poultry, grilled fish or fish in red wine sauce or with fine, dry cheeses.

Editorial Reviews for Antonin Rodet Mâcon-Villages
Delicate and quite floral on the nose with underlying notes of mineral earth, dried yellow fruits and slightly buttery, white chocolaty oak. Vibrant acidity keeps this taut and vivid in the mouth with a bit of a creamy, lemon curd mid-palate fleshing out as it airs. There’s a nice layer of melony fruit in the mouth and excellent length for a modest Macon. This is fresh and delicious showing just a whisper too much oak but so sapid and minerally it’s easy to overlook. 89pts
Light but bright apple nose. It's crisp with a hint of sweetness. A refreshing wine with the tiniest edge of spice, baked apples and pears.
crisp, and vibrant citrus aromas, well-structured acidity balanced with the lime, green apple, and honeydew tastes. Very drink-able and of a good value.
Delicate lemony nose with hints of honeysuckle. Well balanced with great flavors of tropical fruits and a nice long fruity finish. Excellent and my pick of the tasting (6 chardonnay's). Very fruity for a Macon Village.
