Louis Latour Brouilly les Saburins 2013

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very clear and high toned with lime zest and pith notes over a bed of lightly oaked, subtle yet complex fruit tones. Lovely in the mouth with solid acids supporting a broad fleshy yet fresh mouthfeel with a touch of vanilla and hint of fresh baking spice embedded in rich apple, citrus and subtly tropical fruit tones. This has it all, richness, a suave feel and freshness. This is youthful and will improve with a year or three in the bottle but finishes with excellent minerality and length with a great finale of ripe orchard fruits, lime oil and a hint of baked pie crust. 90pts

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

Similar to the 2010 vintage but a touch more on the round, smooth side without as much acidity.

Crisp and lean chardonnay from Burgundy. Citrus, lemon, slight touch of white grapefruit, palate cleansing acidity and a decent finish. Not great, but a decent mid-week drinker for the price.

Tart cherry nose. Fairly thin, but pleasant - well balanced, good acidity, a bit of licorice on the finish. Maraschino cherries throughout, its not bad, just a bit plain - would pair well with food though.

The creamed tea-scented 2004 Mâcon-Lugny Les Genievres is a broad, light to medium-bodied wine. Its easygoing character offers flavors of Georgia boiled peanuts, spices, and minerals. Drink it over the next 18 months.

Delightfully opulant, with a smooth, rich mouthfeel and luscious apple, pear, honey and vanilla notes. Perfect for pairing with artichokes, calamari or salads with goat cheese.

Wine Tasting NotesLugny is one of the best communes of Southern Burgundy's Mconnais region. The wine is clean and lively with a flowery bouquet and lovely honey, apples and nutty flavors on the palate.
