Louis Latour Pouilly-Vinzelles En Paradis 2012
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.
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.
