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.
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.
