    Pale medium yellow. Deeply pitched aromas of ginger, hazelnut, crushed rock and lemon zest. Fat-verging-on-viscous, fine-grained and impressively broad, conveying an almost painful quality to its precise, thick, soil-driven middle palate. Quite linear today despite its richness. The impression of solidity is slightly leavened by excellent energy. Dusts the palate with minerality and leaves the palate vibrating.

  • 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.
