One bottle of this wonderful Meursault Genevrieres Premier Cru 2006, from the beautiful vineyards of Domaine Latour-Giraud

Tasting note

"  An almost invisible hint of pain grillé sets off citrus blossom and honeysuckle aromas that are pure and ultra refined while sliding into vibrant and mineral-inflected medium-bodied flavors that are understated yet beautifully energetic while delivering superb length. A wine of harmony and depth that is on the dry side for the vintage. Drink from 2011+"  91 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.
