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 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

Dark ruby black in color. Brilliant intense aromas of mineral blackberry and currant with hints of Indian spices and cigar box lead to a full-bodied palate with ultrafine tannins and a beautiful balance of blackberry raspberry and mineral. There s subtlety yet also great depth. Lasts for minutes on the palate. This is a Latour with fabulous tone and vigor. Best after 2018. 12 500 cases made. JS Wine Spectator.

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.

Dunkel-rubinrote Farbe, mit vollem Körper, kraftvoll und herzhaft. Ein Rotwein, der sich im Laufe der Jahre zu einem reichhaltigen und robusten Wein mit Tiefe entfaltet.

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.
