    ($88-$100) Medium bright yellow. Complex nose melds spicy stone fruits, mirabelle, white truffle and vanilla. Fat and sweet on entry, then more gripping in the middle palate than the Charmes, with terrific intensity to the vibrant fruit flavors. This boasts terrific aromatic lift in the mouth. The finish is quite powerful and gripping. A big success for the year.

    This is more aromatically elegant still with naturally spicy, pure and refined notes of white flower, green apple and spiced pear that introduce delineated flavors that display real cut and punch on the harmonious and wonderfully persistent finish. Terrific with excellent depth.

    A producer to pay attention to - really lovely Genevrieres, drinking great already.
    Author: Neal
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.
