Domaine Louis Latour Chardonnay Grand Ardeche 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The Grand Ardèche 2011 has a lovely shimmering yellow-green colour. It has a delicate bouquet with a subtle oaky touch. Still young, one must leave it for a few months in order for the the woody notes to be perfectly smooth. It is a very balanced wine with a certain nervousness present on the finish which gives it a very promising future.

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

Im Bouquet offenbaren sich intensive Fruchtaromen, die durch eine feine Honignote akzentuiert werden. Auf dem tonhaltigen Boden des CHTEAU DE PERROY entsteht ein gradliniger, fruchtiger und harmonischer Weisswein, der die Rebsorte und das Terroir perfekt zum Ausdruck bringt. Das ausgewogene Zusammenspiel eines gehaltvollen Körpers und einer nachhaltigen Struktur prägt den Sinneseindruck. Dieser Waadtländer Weisswein von CHTEAU DE PERROY zeigt im lange anhaltenden Finale Profil und Charakter!

Light orange-pink. Musky spice-accented aromas and flavors of redcurrant cherry and rose pastille. Firm even a bit ungiving on entry then fleshier in the mid-palate with a sweet raspberry quality carrying through to the finish. Stephen Tanzer...

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.

Brillantes Ziegelrot. In der Nase vollfruchtiger Kirsch- und Erdbeerduft. Im Gaumen anfangs schmeichelnde Fruchtsüsse, welche mit einer vollmundigen und betörenden Waldbeerenaromatik endet – verlangt einfach nach einem zweiten Glas!
