Louis Latour-Chassagne Montrachet Premier Cru les Caillerets Chardonnay France Burgundy 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

An elegant wine, great flowery finesse, with honey suckle orange blossom, jasmine aromas. A wine with great overall structure and acidity. Some new oak wood character. A definite winner in the making to be enjoyed within five to seven years. Chassagne-Montrachet is located just to the south of Puligny-Montrachet and serves as the last great white wine appellation of the Cte de Beaune. This wine has been selected from one of the best Premier Cru plots of land, namely "Cailleret" where the grapes are exposed to the maximum amount of sunshine to ensure optimum ripeness before the harvest. The wine is fat and full of tropical fruit with a powerful and lingering appeal on the palate.

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
