Louis Latour Pouilly-Fuissé 2017
- Joe Fattorini's Tasting Note: "If ever in doubt when describing white Burgundy go for ‘white flowers’. It’s a catch-all description that sounds impressively non-descript, and does actually sum up the non-exuberant florarity of this wine without saying ‘non-exuberant florality’. Bigger houses like Louis Latour keep consistency up in poorer years like 2013 so we can still enjoy well-made, citrus and honeysuckle scented wines like this."
- Pouilly-Fuissé is the name of a village in the Mâconnais producing highly distinctive Chardonnay wine.
- The vineyards producing this wine are part of a breath-taking landscape where the limestone and heavy clay soils combine to create a unique 'terroir'.
- Pouilly-Fuissé reveals a nice and brilliant pale yellow colour.
- On the nose, complex aromas of white flowers and acacia, honey and white fruits.
- On the palate, it is opulent and elegant. You will find floral notes, almond paste and fresh hazelnut. It is a little spicy on the finish.
- Food Pairing Suggestions: Shellfish, charcuterie, skate, reblochon cheese.
