Latour Meursault 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator Review A fresh, stylish white, with apple, lime and mineral aromas and flavors. Creamy in texture and supported by lively acidity, this lingers on the finish. Drink now through 2013. Wine Tasting Notes A lively wine with a lot of potential, forthright. Very pleasant citric aromas reminding us of lemony tangy summer flavors, yet has a slight fresh cut green grass and forest canopy hint. Will open up more as it evolves. Wait two to three years.

The Latours have been vintners in Burgundy since the 17th century, slowly building a unique Domaine of 125 acres. Maison Louis Latour currently has the largest Grand Cru property in all of the Cote d’Or with a total of 71.58 acres. The vineyards extend from Chambertin in the north to Chevalier-Montrachet in the south and are solely planted with the two noble grape varieties: Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. All of the grapes from the vineyards we own are vinified and aged in the attractive cuverie of Château Corton Grancey in Aloxe-Corton. The winery was the first purpose-built cuverie in France and remains the oldest still-functioning. A unique rail-way system with elevators allows the entire wine-making process to be achieved by the use of gravity. This eliminates the threat of oxidation from unnecessary pumping of the must. Since 1985, Louis Latour has been selling the wines from its own vineyards under the name Domaine Louis Latour. The Latour family founded the ‘Maison de négoce’, an important shipping company, in 1797, and it is still based at 18 Rue des Tonneliers in Beaune to this day. The company is unique in Burgundy in that it is still family-owned and family-run, having been passed down from father to son for over ten generations. To celebrate our Bicentenary in 1797, we published a commemorative book and were admitted into the exclusive club of the Hénokiens. This club only accepts companies that are leaders in their respective fields, remain family owned, have a history of 200 years’ experience and still bear the name of their founder. There are only approximately 30 of these companies in the world. Maison Louis Latour ships its wines to over 60 countries worldwide. These world-class Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs can be found on the most famous dining tables around the globe. Read less

A lively wine with a lot of potential, forthright. Very pleasant citric aromas reminding us of lemony tangy summer flavors, yet has a slight fresh cut green grass and forest canopy hint. Will open up more as it evolves. Wait two to three years. Tasted January 2007
