One bottle of this wonderful Meursault Genevrieres Premier Cru 2005, from the beautiful vineyards of Domaine Latour-Giraud

Tasting note

"   I was knocked out by the combination of airy, pure and elegant spicy white flower and citrus aromas that are at once seductive and classy and this refinement continues onto the precise, vibrant and minerally medium weight flavors that are both powerful and driving on the explosive and wonderfully long finish. This doesn't have the very best material in the range but this is one of those 'wow' wines as the harmony of expression is simply beautiful."  91-94 points Allen Meadows, Burghound.com

Domaine Latour-Giraud

Charles and Maxime, the 2 grandfathers Giraud and Latour, gave their names to the top quality Meursault Villages from the Domaine Latour-Giraud. Jean-Pierre is known in the region as one of Meursault’s best winemakers. The estate underwent a dramatic revival when he took over in the 1990’s. The village wines are aged in one-quarter to one-third new oak barrels. Jean-Pierre Latour’s wines are classic white Burgundies: intense and concentrated, stylish and powerful, layered and balanced.

The Latour-Giraud Meursault combine lemon-pear-quince-citrus fruits with the characteristic mineral qualities of the soil and layers of sweet vanilla oak and toast.

Jean-Pierre Latour ferments only free-run juice with wild, natural yeasts. The premier cru wines are aged in 40-70% new barrels depending on the character of the wine and the vintage. The wines are kept on their lees as long as possible and racking is kept to a minimum. They are fined, but not filtered, and bottled by hand. Jean-Pierre carefully monitors each wine and bottles each when it is ready over the course of six months.
