Louis Latour Pouilly-Vinzelles En Paradis 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

The town of Vinzelles takes its name from the Latin word "vincella" which means small vine, and has had vineyards planted there since Roman times. From 122 acres of essentially South and South-East facing vineyards, on the predominantly limestone slopes, the vineyards of Pouilly-Vinzelles are exclusively planted to chardonnay and closely resemble the wines from its neighbor Pouilly-Fuisse. The Pouilly-Vinzelles "En Paradis" 2012 reveals a lovely nose of exotic fruits, particularly mango, accompanied by hints of brioche. In the mouth it is ample and round, with aromas of yellow fruits and peppery notes on the finish.

The Latours have been vintners in Burgundy since the 17th century, slowly building a unique Domaine of 125 acres. Maison Louis Latour currently has the largest Grand Cru property in all of the Cote d’Or with a total of 71.58 acres. The vineyards extend from Chambertin in the north to Chevalier-Montrachet in the south and are solely planted with the two noble grape varieties: Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. All of the grapes from the vineyards we own are vinified and aged in the attractive cuverie of Château Corton Grancey in Aloxe-Corton. The winery was the first purpose-built cuverie in France and remains the oldest still-functioning. A unique rail-way system with elevators allows the entire wine-making process to be achieved by the use of gravity. This eliminates the threat of oxidation from unnecessary pumping of the must. Since 1985, Louis Latour has been selling the wines from its own vineyards under the name Domaine Louis Latour. The Latour family founded the ‘Maison de négoce’, an important shipping company, in 1797, and it is still based at 18 Rue des Tonneliers in Beaune to this day. The company is unique in Burgundy in that it is still family-owned and family-run, having been passed down from father to son for over ten generations. To celebrate our Bicentenary in 1797, we published a commemorative book and were admitted into the exclusive club of the Hénokiens. This club only accepts companies that are leaders in their respective fields, remain family owned, have a history of 200 years’ experience and still bear the name of their founder. There are only approximately 30 of these companies in the world. Maison Louis Latour ships its wines to over 60 countries worldwide. These world-class Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs can be found on the most famous dining tables around the globe. Read less

Pear and granny-smith apples resonate throughout this wine. Lemony acidity and limestone minerality makes this wine a natural for roasted foul. Serve this wine with Cornish hens with butter and herb rub and pan roasted vegetables. You can also serve gratins and quiche with this crisp wine. The fat content of rich food begs for the acidity of this style of wine to refresh the palate.

Intense aromas of candied fruit along with a touch of honey. This is a round and fat wine, with nice length.
