As much as I've fallen for the Perroud reds this year, I was actually quite taken by their quaint little Bourgogne blanc, a wine that offers much more richness than what we normally see in the Macon or in Chablis. 2015 was a warmer vintage and their hillside vineyards got plenty of sun (when they weren't getting pounded with hail), so the chardonnay has plenty of creamy texture. It's not all hedonistic, however, as if there's one thing the Perrouds do well it's balance. There's a fresh and fruity backbone to those richer notes of baked apple and spice. It's utterly charming stuff.
