Wine of the Week 

Of all the multiple treasures yielded by Burgundy's Cote d'Or, the tiny village of Meursault just 5 miles south of Beaune produces what is undeniably one of the top wines in the world made from Chardonnay grapes. Planted on southeasterly slopes of the Cotes de Beaune, grapes from Meursault consistently produce compelling, easy-drinking wines. At Louis Latour, the wine ferments in oak barrels, followed by 12 months of barrel aging before light filtration and bottling. In the glass, the Latour releases aromas of pear and apple and offers vibrant fruit flavors, hazelnuts and toasty oak notes in a firmly structured wine. Pairs well with trout meuniere or amandine, lobster and other shellfish with rich sauces. Available at Martin Wine Cellar and Hugh's Wine Cellar in Mandeville.
