Mouton Oregogne Chardonnay 2011
This Willamette Valley Chardonnay with an engaging flinty mineral flavors that usher into a crisp palate of lemon cucumber, green pear, grilled hazelnuts and yellow apple. Balanced acidity with a fine stony finish.
André Hueston Mack’s first career was as a sommelier, first at French Laundry in Napa and the head sommelier at Per Se in Manhattan. In 2007 he switched out to form a company called Mouton Noir, which is dedicated (strange combination though it may seem) to producing both a line of T-shirts and some very classy Oregon wines. The wines are unique and distinctive garage wines, initially created for some of the restaurants where Mack and his friends have worked and now available nationwide.
