Laboure Roi "Vallon d'Or" Pouilly Fuissé 2009 Chardonnay

Laboure Roi "Vallon d'Or" Pouilly Fuissé 2009 Chardonnay, $11.99-$17.99, 89 points, is a lovely white wine, it is lively yet very discreet, it is a great wine for light affairs, flavors are subtle yet there is a presence that gives this wine a place without demanding attention.
I paired this with white-fish and dare I say French-fries.
The color is a slight coppery-gold, the aroma is lemon zest, the flavor is washed stone and subtle citrus, and the texture is gently smooth.
I bought this wine for $11.99; now that's a great deal. I hope many of my Canadian readers took advantage of the 15% off sale while visiting or going through New Hampshire last month; if any of you picked-up this wine and get a chance to let me know how you liked it , I would greatly appreciate it.

  1. Do you reckon this is a good wine for light love affairs as well, Den? Lively and discreet.. sounds just about right. Thanks for the review, really enjoyed the washed stone notes, helped the mental tasting quite well.

  2. Ben, your comments are done quite well as well!
