Maison Louis Latour 2012 Bourgogne Chardonnay - 89pts

Maison Louis Latour 2012 Bourgogne Chardonnay (Burgundy AOC) - France

Availability: BCLDB stores
Cost: $24.99
Alcohol: 13%
Date Tasted: December 13th, 2014

Tasting Notes: This expressive and palate-pleasing wine is a blend of Chardonnay sourced from multiple vineyard sites throughout the Burgundy AOC, all with vines 30 years of age or older. Beyond malolactic fermentation (a naturally occurring secondary fermentation that softens the acid content of the wine) this Chardonnay is a very pure representation of the grape thanks to the minimalist approach employed by Maison Louis Latour (fermented and aged in stainless steel - no oak contact). The result is an honest, crisp, fruit'n'floral Chardonnay with a light kick of spice and river stones on the moderate-plus, mouth-watering finish. 

Lean enough to pair with seafood and round enough to match with creamy pasta - exceptionally food friendly. Drink now-2017.
