LaBoure-Roi Pouilly Fuisse 2008 review by (PB)


This white Burgundy made from Chardonnay is vastly different than the Chards we're used to of new world origins! It presents with a nice gentle golden hue with a bouquet that is at once citrusy and lively with vibrant mineral notes and laced with vanilla and a fleeting note of mint.

Palate--Lemon peel is pronounced with an austere foundation, and a rigorous acid core with notes of lime as well. It paired well with my "birthday" lobster stew.

Reference price of $20 but found it marked down from $16 to $14. A nice change from the lock and stock carbon copied Chards that abound on the market. Raise a glass!
