Louis Latour Macon-Villages AC Chameroy, Burgundy, France 2011 $17

Louis Latour is famous for its white wines, especially the great Corton-Charlemagne. From the less-famous villages of the Cote Chalonnais and the Maconnais, however, it produces some very affordable and lovely chardonnays. Dan Murphys’ direct importing also helps keep prices down. This has a bright, light to medium yellow colour and is clean and fresh, the aromas showing peach and a hint of spice, while the palate is full and ample, with a slight grip and a touch of pepper. It finishes clean and dry and that trace of tannin helps it partner food. A good white burgundy of density and persistence. Best within two years. 13 per cent alcohol. 89/100 – Huon’s Wine 360

Food: roast chicken; prawn and saffron risotto; ripe Brie or Camembert
