Louis Latour Mâcon-Villages Chameroy 2010

Many would call Maison Louis Latour the Kendall Jackson of France – they’ve been making wines for more than 200 years in this region and make hundreds of different varietals, ranging from $10 to $400 per bottle.
Mâcon-Villages Chameroy is made of 100-percent Chardonnay and represents a classic white Burgundy, which means it’s made with Chardonnay grapes from the Mâcon-Villages region in Burgundy, France. This area is known for producing grapes that impart a mineral flavor – from the ground in which they grow – into the wine. French Chardonnays are not as fruit-forward as California Chardonnays; they’re crisper, and you can almost taste the earth where they’re grown. This wine is pale yellow in color and has a nose of white fruits. On the palate, it has a beautiful minerality and is clean and crisp; you can definitely taste the grape and terroir of Burgundy.
Retailing at approximately $15 a bottle, this is a great wine to try to determine if you prefer French-style or the more fruit-forward, California-style Chardonnays. The Mâcon-Villages Chameroy will pair nicely with this month’s Smoked Turkey and Apple Salad – a great combination to enjoy on a lovely autumn day!
