Ch Latour 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Das einmalige Terroir des CHTEAU DE PERROY schafft die Basis und ist auch gleichzeitig der Garant für einen ausgewogenen, facettenreichen Waadtländer Rotwein der oberen Qualitätsstufe. Die intensiven, reintönigen, reifen Fruchtaromen (Himbeeren, Erdbeeren) und die dezenten Gewürznoten in der Nase erfüllen schon im Bouquet die hohen Erwartungen in diesen Grand Cru. Aber auch im Gaumen und im Finale weiss dieser Pinot von CHTEAU DE PERROY durch seine zugängliche Textur und durch seine fruchtige Struktur zu überzeugen.

Louis Latour:

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

From Louis Latour, one of the masters of white Burgundy, comes this lovely, apple-scented everyday French Chardonnay. Medium-bodied, fresh and juicy. A great value.

Dirler is an expert when it comes to handling Pinot Noir from Alsace. This is his "best in show" and you'll instantly taste why the minute you open the bottle.

Deep ruby-red. Reticent brooding aromas of cassis black plum graphite and flowers. Then utterly explosive in the mouth with wonderful sappy complexity of flavor and a thickness of texture that builds and builds toward the back almost no sign of the new oak here. Offers a near-magical combination of power and refinement but this extremely primary wine is still an infant. Finishes with extraordinary persistence that leaves the palate vibrating. One of the greatest young Bordeaux I ve tasted in recent years and more complete and classic than the outrageously lush 2003. For his part Engerer feels that this wine combines the best traits of the 2003 and 2000 Latours. I made the mistake of retasting the 2007 after trying this and the tannins of the younger wine came off as dry by comparison. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Inky red/purple that doesn't fade. Cool minty dark chocolate on the nose with big dark plum and black cherry notes. Rich and full big tannic structure that is well integrated. A... Mike Supple. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Latour, Chateau 6000ml

87% Cabernet Sauvignon 12% Merlot 1% Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Inky red/purple that doesn t fade. Cool minty dark chocolate on the nose with big dark plum and black cherry notes. Rich and full big tannic structure that is well integrated. A smoky long fruit finish this is a complex and beautiful wine. Fairly open for such a young wine. Tannins are nice and soft.
