  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

    (cropped at barely 30 hectoliters per hectare, according to Jean-Pierre Latour): Bright pale-medium yellow. Perfumed aromas of orange oil, underripe pineapple and honey. Juicy, pure and penetrating, with nicely integrated acidity contributing to the impression of inner-mouth tension. More concentrated than the Charmes and a real essence of Meursault, offering a lovely combination of delicacy and force. Finishes with lovely mounting perfume. |The most complete wine in the cellar in 2011,| noted Latour.

  • 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.
