Louis Latour Volnay Premier Cru En Chevret 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

The availability of this product is limited and subject to change.<br/><br/>Wine Enthusiast Review<br/>Rated 92<br/>This has ripe fruit, packed with strawberry jam with a good concentration as well as red plums and rounded tannins. It is rich and smooth, although well cut with tannins and acidity. This balanced wine will age well; drink from 2018.<br/><br/>Wine Tasting Notes<br/>Brilliant garnet in color this wine has a distinctly spiced bouquet. With its balanced tannins and rounded structure we are able to appreciate notes of raspberry and spices in the mouth. This is a incredibly smooth wine now and although good to drink straight away it will make a good cellaring wine.

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

Wine Tasting NotesThe wine is elegant and well-structured with delicate red and black fruits of the forest flavors and a slightly floral bouquet said to resemble violets. Accompanies all sorts of rich cuisine due to its full body and tannic grip. A traditional style Burgundy from the old school.

Wine Spectator ReviewA burst of cassis and blackberry introduce this sappy red. It's almost chewy, with lush, ripe fruit that matches its dense tannins. It's hard to state its origins, but it's appealing. Drink now through 2012.Wine Tasting NotesBrilliant garnet in color this wine has a distinctly spiced bouquet. With its balanced tannins and rounded structure we are able to appreciate notes of raspberry and spices in the mouth. This is a incredibly smooth wine now and although good to drink straight away it will make a good cellaring wine.
