Labouré-Roi Pouilly-Fuissé Vallon d'Or

Wine Details





Wine Description

(2006 Vintage) Pouilly Fuissé, the finest wine of the Maconnais and one of the best known names from Burgundy, comes from 2,100 acres of vines to the west of the town of Macon, covering the five communes of Fuisse, Pouilly, Solutre, Chaintre and Vergisson. Wines from the neighbouring communes of Loche and Vinzelles may not benefit from the Pouilly-Fuisse appelation. The high limestone content in the granite-based soil suits Chardonnay to perfection and the warmer climate of the Macconais, compared to the cote d'Or and especially to Chablis, allows the grapes to ripen fully, giving high degrees of natural read more...alcohol to the wine. Laboure Roi's production averages 35,000 cases. (hide)
