Thibert Mâcon-Fuissé, 2005

This Thibert Mâcon-Fuissé presents a great value in white Burgundy. Pure Chardonnay, moderately oaked, the result a well-balanced, full-bodied wine with hints of citrus and mineral on the nose, and buttery mouthfeel on the palate complemented by hints of peach and white plums. This is one of the Mâcon appellations allowed to hyphenate the town's name into the wine region, allowing a more specific designation than just "Mâcon" or "Mâcon Villages." Such specificity is supposed to indicate higher quality, and does in this case. Worth trying at $15.
