Laboure Roi Pouilly-Fuisse 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Pouilly Fuissé, the finest wine of the Maconnais and one of the best known names from Burgundy, comes from 2,100 acres of vines to the west of the town of Macon, covering the five communes of Fuisse, Pouilly, Solutre, Chaintre and Vergisson. Wines from the neighbouring communes of Loche and Vinzelles may not benefit from the Pouilly-Fuisse appelation. The high limestone content in the granite-based soil suits Chardonnay to perfection and the warmer climate of the Macconais, compared to the cote d'Or and especially to Chablis, allows the grapes to ripen fully, giving high degrees of natural alcohol to the wine. Laboure Roi's production averages 35,000 cases.

golden yellow. Notes of lemon peel, citrus. Flavors of lemon, some oak (in my opinion not enough), caramel and creamy finish. Not bad. 87pts

Creamy nose. Prominent oak in the attack, with lush apples toning the oak down in the mid-palate.

Superbly balanced with enticing pear apple and melon nuances. Riper than most offerings from this famous Chalonnais parish this wine is a careful blend of some of the ripest and best Chardonnay fruit in the region.
