Louis Latour, Chablis

€28.99

This is a delicious and refreshing Chablis that has all of the typicity you'd expect from such a famed producer. It is mineral, citrus, lightly perfumed and really lively. Excellent with the best sort of shellfish you can find, or with charcuterie, as an aperitif, or if you're feeling really adventurous, with the local delicacy of andouillettes.

Maison Louis Latour needs little in the way of validation: one of the most respected and popular Burgundy houses, they were responsible (seemingly single-handedly) for the mass sales and growth in popularity of the entire Macon regioin through their single vineyard Macon Lugny Les Genièvres in the early 2000s. But they are significantly more than a one-trick pony; with vineyard holdings in the top sites across Burgundy and a number of Domaine-bottled wines, they are important winemakers across the whole of the south and east of France with a clear and vibrant style. Their list currently shows 169 different wines... 

Established in 1797 after the French revolution in the village of Aloxe Corton, the Latours turned the the family cooperage business into a wine-making one following the acquisition of key vineyard parcels in Beaune. After the attack of Phylloxera at the end of the 19th-Century, the family bought the famous Chateau de Gracey, complete with a large gravity-fed winery and barrel storing facility in which they are still based to this day.

This wine is fresh and bright but balances this lightness with a complexity that comes from a mixture of soils and the winery philosophies of fine lees aging for 6 months and complete malo-lactic fermentation.

Could not recommend The Allotment enough. The selection is fantastic and each wine that I've drank from them has been utterly phenomenal. Delivery was no hassle and I had the wine at my door in 2 days. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

★★★★★
Delicious and interesting range of wines delivered promptly to my door. Not far off that lovely feeling of coming back laden from a good wine store but without any of the traffic or the worry of breaking the wine en route (very impressive travel wrap).
