Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 92(+?)

($86) Aromas of peach and nutty oak convey an almost exotic ripeness. At once sweet and fresh, with stone fruit, lemon and rocky flavors framed by strong, ripe acidity. This can't quite match the Genevrieres for subtlety or intensity, but this very young wine displays excellent cut and structure.

About This Producer


This estate, located on the Route Nationale in the village of Meursault, should be the poster-child for superb, terroir-specific white wine. The domaine's holdings in premier cru and villages vineyards is impressive, as is their ownership of the largest parcel of 1er cru "Genevrieres," one-third of which is over 50 years old. When Jean-Pierre Latour arrived as winemaker in the 1990s, he launched a revolution of upgrades that promoted progressive technology (new pneumatic presses, crusher-de-stemmers and temperature-controlled tanks), sustainable agriculture and a new barrel program. He only uses free-run juice and natural yeasts. Though mildly fined, the wines are not filtered and thus the integrity of the terroir's true expression is beautifully maintained. The happy consequence is an ever-increasing quality.
