Louis Latour Pouilly-Vinzelles ‘En Paradis’

By | January 8, 2008

Having polished off all the Louis Latour Mâcon-Lugny in the house we opted to try a Louis Latour Pouilly-Vinzelles ‘En Paradis’ 2005 which looked similar (!) and was about a quid more expensive, so I was looking forward to it.

It’s pale, with a light aroma of under-ripe apricot and some blossom. It’s dry with a crisp acidity and medium body. It fell down a little in the flavour department. I was expecting good things but there wasn’t a lot of flavour intensity. A little pineapple lurked in there, with a little buttered toast, but it was well diluted, lacking the concentration I’d enjoyed from its cheaper Burgundian neighbour.
Save yourself a pound or two and choose the Macon-Lugny from Majestic instead.
