This unusual blend of Chardonnay and
Viognier comes from venerable Burgundy
producer Louis Latour.
What You Need To Know
Vineyards in Burgundy are among
the world’s most expensive farmland, which is why even the
region’s humblest wines are still relatively pricey. (And an acre of
prestigious grand cru vines will set you back a staggering $2
million or so.) So it’s no wonder that Louis Latour, a family-owned
producer best known for wines like its Chambertin Grand Cru,
looks to less-exalted regions to make a few affordable cuvées.
Among them is this white blend, which comes from vineyards
about 200 miles south of Beaune, in the rugged Ardèche region.
It combines Burgundy’s signature grape, Chardonnay, with
Viognier, the floral, peach-inflected Rhône variety. Picked and
fermented together and then aged in tanks (not oak), they
create a fabulously silky, seamlessly balanced blend.
