Excellent power on the compact, and beautifully long finale.

About this Wine

While not a Cru wine, the fruit for this Meursault village comes from vineyards at the tip of the best Grand and Premier Cru sites in the region.

The complexity and finesse of this wine is through the roof, and the value (relative to Cru Meursault) is simply extraordinary. The palate is elegant, and so lengthy, it just lingers for a pleasurable eternity.

While there is plenty of joy to be had drinking it now, there’s no need to rush, as the wine has the chops to age until the end of this decade.

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.

Critic Reviews

Inside Burgundy

"A little more primrose in the colour, with some weight of fruit, not quite the excitement I was hoping for but possibly dampened by the recent bottling. On the palate the expected concentration kicks in, tightly wound, some citrus notes in with ripe apple and a little bit of plum. Don’t be in a hurry for this. Very slight passion fruit aromatics. Slightly between two stools at the moment. Les Narvaux makes Jean-Pierre think of Meursault Perrières at village level." Jasper Morris (Inside Burgundy)

"A more elegant combination consists of cool citrus and airy floral nuances along with apple, poached pear and a whiff of exotic tea. The delicious, racy and impressively concentrated medium-bodied flavors that display excellent power on the compact, mineral driven and beautifully long finale. This is a really good Meursault villages that should age gracefully for up to a decade." 90-92 pts Allen Meadows (Burghound)

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.
