2010 Maison Louis Latour Chevalier-Montrachet Les Demoiselles Grand Cru
FRANCE / BURGUNDY / PULIGNY-MONTRACHET
Burghound | Rating: 94If the Criots is the ripest of these grands crus, then the Demoiselles possesses the most elegant nose with a complex mix of white flowers, pear, stone, spice and citrus nuances. The impressively proportioned flavors are surprisingly approachable, at least in the context of a classic Chevalier though this impression is undoubtedly enhanced by the abundance of dry extract that largely buffers the otherwise firm acid spine on the powerfully long finish. In sum, this is a notably bigger wine than is typical and the trade-off is that it is not quite as lively and refined in the mouth.Author: Allen Meadows
Wine Spectator | Rating: 92Leads off with honey, citronella and toast flavors, with an undercurrent of lemon and apple notes. Balanced, needing time for the refined structure to integrate. Subtle intensity and length build to a lingering aftertaste.Author: Bruce Sanderson
