Henri Larue Pouilly-Loche 2016

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from a local supermarket for £10.APouilly-Loche is an appellation created in 1940[although there has been viticulture here since at least the Romans] for white wines only made of the chardonnay grape from the commune of Loche on the Cotes Maconnais in southern Burgundy.It is located next to Pouilly-Fuisse and Pouilly-Vinzelles about 2 miles south-west of the town of Macon.I have not been able to discover much about Henri Larue although the label says'bottled by Emb 71583 pour Henri Larue - Beaune' nor about Emb71583,but I can only presume it is some sort of negociant house or else a brand name.I started the bottle last night with my fish and chips.There is some melon style fruit and a little citrus on the finish but I have had fruitier wines.There is no suggestion of vanilla or butter so this is probably an unoaked wine.I would say this is a bland or mineral white wine but it was a match for the fish and chips.
