Pleasant aromas of mirabelle plums are revealed on the nose and in the mouth; this wine is rich with a long finish. A real treat!

Description:
Maison Louis Latour rigorously selects grapes from the well-exposed commune of Lugny which was the only village planted with Chardonnay 30 years ago due to a perfect terroir. Lugny is one of the top vineyards in southern Burgundy’s Mâconnais region, Mâcon-Lugny "Les Genièvres" is simply an outstanding wine. Opulent, rich, with a flowery bouquet and lovely honey, apple and nutty flavours on the palate.
