Pouilly-Vinzelles Limestone Rich Terroir
The soul of this luxurious, ample Chardonnay, from Wine Spectator’s “outstanding to classic” vintage, stems from 30-year-old vines ensconced in the limestone-rich terroir of Pouilly-Vinzelles—a tiny Mâconnais village that Latour’s been exploring since the days of Prohibition. So Winemaker Jean Charles Thomas employs the same attention to the village’s terroir that he uses to craft labels from Latour’s Grand Cru holdings in Corton-Charlemagne, the Côte de Nuits, and Chevalier-Montrachet. Hence resulting in an opulent Chardonnay that mirrors the wines of the neighboring Pouilly-Fuiseé appellation in every way except for the latter’s ever-increasing price. While Gorgeously aromatic with a creamy mouthfeel and flavors redolent of honeysuckle and stone fruits underscored by dazzling minerality and vibrancy.
Maconnais & Louis Latour | Outstanding to Classic 2015 Vintage
Vinzelles is a sliver of a village wedged between a millennium-old fortified castle and a 13th-century château in the Mâconnais. While most negociants are too busy rushing past Vinzelles to explore its 122 acres of southeast-facing Chardonnay vines. As a result, spending their days soaking up the character of the region’s limestone-dominant landscape. Such haste gives Louis Latour prime access to the best fruit these succulent vines have to offer.
