Laboure-Roi Pouilly-Fuisse Vallon D'Or '03, Burgundy, France

laboure Roi

An elegant Pouilly-Fuisse from Burgundy.

Technical Data:100% Chardonnay. Following the malolactic fermentation, the wine spends 8 to 10 months in tank before bottling.

Description:Golden color. Floral and fruity aromas on the nose with hints of honey and hazelnuts. On the palate, medium-bodied wine yet rich and dry. This Chardonnay shows lots of white fruits flavors but also a nice minerality and some lively floral undertones all together in a very well balanced exemple of what could be a Pouilly-Fuisse when well crafted. Long lasting creamy and rounded finish.

Food Pairing & Service:Serve chilled but not iced, at 55 Fahrenheit. Drink with all smoked fish, fish grilled or in a sauce, poultry and white meats, including turkey and pork, creamy cheeses.
