2003 Louis Latour Marsannay (White Burgundy)
A really good value in a classy white burgundy. From the northernmost town in the entire Cote d'Or -- just south of the city of Dijon. Gorgeous nose of fresh-baked croissants, tangerines, and peaches. Intense, full-bodied steely-minerally flavors, with fruit that tastes of dry-pear extract. Fairly long in the mouth, with marzipan the last note in the finish. 88. About $14 at Richard's on Westheimer (in the Taco Milagro plaza).
