Louis Latour Grand Ardeche 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.

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

A terrific, affordable, stylish French Chardonnay from the Ardeche region : dry with authentic Chardonnay flavors vinted in the classic Latour style.

The fruit is earthy and sweet with rounded, supple, gamy flavors plus good density and length. This should benefit from 5 to 7 years of cellar time.

From famed estate Ch. de Puligny-Montrachet comes this red Burgundy that's very giving on the palate. The type of wine that can be held for years to come.

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.

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... Mike Supple. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Latour, Chateau 6000ml
