Louis Latour Château de Blagny Meursault Premiere Cru Blagny 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator Review Full and rich, with apple, anise and mineral aromas and flavors. There's also a firm spine of acidity that keeps this focused and balanced. Ends with a mouthwatering impression. Best from 2008 throigh 2016. Wine Tasting Notes A lively, nervous wine with mineral character. On the bouquet if first reveals citric aromas with lemons coming forth the most, then its secondary notes develop into greener ones, white flower ones. Perfect evolution to be enjoyed in five to ten years.

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

Don't overchill this one. Medium acidity and body, slight oak on nose and tinge of minerality is balanced with lemon and fruit flavors. Better as an accompaniment to food than by itself.
