The village of Lugny is located high up in the South of the Mâcon region. It has a great reputation for its white wines which has made Mâcon famous. It is well known that the village of Lugny, with its limestone soils and warm climate, produces the most coveted white wines of the region. The vineyard of « Les Genièvres » is one of the best. Maison Louis Latour selects the best grapes of this village, which thanks to its terroir, was the only village planted with Chardonnay 30 years ago.
Country: Burgundy, France
Tasting Note: This Mâcon-Lugny "Les Genièvres" 2016 reveals a pale golden colour. The nose reveals intense aromas of white fruits, elderflowers and muscat notes. The palate is full with a sweet scent of mandarin.
Louis Laotur是法國布根地的重量級酒莊，更是許多王公貴族的至愛及在世界各大高級酒店與餐廳酒單上都能見到他們的葡萄酒。加上他們一向以釀造頂級白酒見稱，這是因為在19世紀末的根瘤蚜疫情蹂躪之後，Latour 家族決定拔掉當時已死掉的紅葡萄樹，並以白葡萄Chardonnay取代，這一決定令他們成為布根地最著名的白葡萄酒世家。
