Maison Louis Latour, Mâcon-Lugny (Burgundy, France) “Les Genièvres” 2020

($18, Louis Latour, USA):  I’ve been buying and drinking this Mâcon-Lugny from Latour regularly since the 1979 vintage.  It never disappoints and surprisingly, for a rather down-market appellation, actually develops beautifully with several years of bottle age.  With the price of Côte d’Or white Burgundy through the roof, wines, such as this one, from the Mâconnais are the way to go for Burgundy lovers.  The 2020 vintage is fabulous for whites, which makes this one even more attractive.  It delivers just the right combination of green apple-like fruitiness, a touch of minerality and a citrusy finish.  Stock up for summer.
