Louis Latour Mâcon-Lugny

By | December 19, 2007

With Christmas fast approaching I was shopping for wine, and picked up a selection for assorted festive needs. Two nice people loaded up the car for me.

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.

    Thank you for the recommendation. Your tasting note is really evocative. It feels as though I had drunk the wine myself!
    Louis Latour is a corporation with know how. Their whites are often fresh enough. Beware that the wines priced higher than this one often show a distinct vanilla/toasted quality too.
