About this Wine

Meursault in full flight here, this wine, from one of, if not the most important producer in the famous village, is a lesson in depth and complexity.

Exquisitely structured, this Chardonnay is round, deep and smooth, it also has great elegance, finesse and raciness.

So many layers to this wine, rich fruit, yet balanced by a smokiness that this Cru is known for. Otherworldly, this wine has blown our minds, it’s something special that anyone who values themselves a Burgundy connoisseur needs to try.

About Latour-Giraud

Latour-Giraud can trace their roots back to the 17th century in the region of Meursault.

The marriage between the Latour family (winemakers), and the Girauds (distillers) happened in the mid-20th century, and the rest as they say is history.

Current steward Jean-Pierre Latour took over in 1993, and since then has continued their legacy of excellence in the region.

Production of this Domaine is a little over 80% white, with the majority of vines across five premiers crus of Meursault: Les Genevrières, Les Charmes, Les Perrières, Les Bouchères and Le Poruzot.

Domaine Latour-Giraud is the most important owner of this fabulous premier cru, with 2.5Ha. Along with Perrières, this would be considered by most to be Meursault’s top premier cru.

Critic Reviews

Inside Burgundy

"Full mid yellow, with a relatively accessible nose, a little bit buttery. This soon settles down and regains the lovely nuanced, mineral, slightly smoky character of Genevrières. There is plenty going on here, as the fruit opens out beautifully. I would not have wanted this to be any riper but as it is it presents so many different facets. A really complex, intriguing wine. A little touch of bacon to finish. Terrific." Jasper Morris (Inside Burgundy)

"This too is sufficiently reduced to mask the fruit though discreet spice elements can be discerned. There is excellent volume and mid-palate density to the extract rich flavors that pack very good punch on the stony and surprisingly powerful finish that offers excellent length where the only reproach is a touch of warmth. While this retains the intrinsic refinement of a fine Genevrières, it's bigger and more powerful than usual." 91-94 pts Allen Meadows (Burghound)

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
