We tried out a bottle from the haul with a fish pie. It was a Louis Latour Mâcon-Lugny 2006. A bright, pale lemon with a touch of green. It smelled fresh and crisp with apple and something not quite liquorice, not quite quince but really inviting. Bone dry and crisply acidic it was refreshingly clean. Apples and a little lemon joined the not-quite identified slightly spicy taste with some soft malo-lactic butteriness. It worked really well.
At £7-8 a bottle this is good value chardonnay from Burgundy, but with the latest offer at Majestic it’s £5 on multi-buy. I’m really glad, as we’ve already worked our way through the Christmas dinner allowance. Stock up whilst it’s on sale.
