Louis Latour Montagny Grande Roche Premier Cru 2012

Member Review by vin0vin0:

Nice white burgundy. Crisp, tart with plenty of citrus, lemon, some spice and a nice bit of acidity. There is a slight bit of a metallic edge but all in all a good chard for the price.

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

I bought this wine based on a review. What a mistake. This tastes like a wine I would pay no more than $6 a bottle for, not the $20 that I did. Someone wrote a very misleading review! Or maybe it was good at one point but has started to "turn" when I bought in January 2010.

Richly layered, creamy palate. Complex with hints of oak and baked apple pie. Very balanced and constantly evolving on the palate. Wonderful! - Schreiner's Winers 7/7/10

Aromas of white flowers such as acacia. It is rich and fat and holds up impressively in the mouth.
