Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

BH 92
Burghound.com
A ripe and quite spicy nose offers up notes of honeysuckle, white peach, roasted nut and a hint of acacia. The exceptionally rich, even opulent flavors coat the palate with dry extract before terminating in a clean, intense and discreetly mineral-suffused finale. I really like the sappy, even seductive, texture thanks to the abundant extract and this should age effortlessly.

Domaine Latour-Giraud, France
The Latour family has been established on the Route Nationale in Meursault for many generations. In 1958 the Latours merged with the estate of the Guiraud family to form the current configuration. Focused primarily in Meursault, the estate owns an impressive range of villages and premier cru vineyards between 25 and 50+ years old including the largest parcel of Meursault Genevrieres. They also own a parcel in Puligny Montrachet Champs Canet and red vineyards in Pommard, Volnay and Meursault Caillerets. Since the 1990?s, with the arrival of the articulate and perfectionist winemaker, Jean-Pierre Latour, the estate has undergone what the Review des Vins de France has called ?a true cultural revolution.? In a major commitment to improving quality, the estate adopted organic agricultural practices and reduced yields to 25-35 hectoliters per hectare. Investments were made in new pneumatic presses, crusher-destemmers and temperature controlled stainless steel fermenting tanks. For the white wines, Jean-Pierre ferments only free run juice with wild, natural yeasts. The village wines are aged in 20% new barrels and the premier cru 25% new barrels. The wines are kept on their lies an appropriate time to balance texture and acidity and racking is kept to a minimum. The whites are fined, but not filtered, and bottled by hand. Unlike many producers who bottle all their wines at once, Jean-Pierre carefully monitors each wine and bottles at the optimal time over a 6 month period. Jean-Pierre?s whites are classic Burgundies ? intense and concentrated, stylish and powerful, layered and balanced. They combine lemon, pear, quince and citrus fruits and hints of spice, smoke and toast with the characteristic mineral qualities of the soil. At the same time, they are lean and dry, focused and true to their appellation and vineyard site. He is now regarded as one of the top echelon of producers of white Burgundy. Please see reviews in Steve Tanzer (Vinous) and Burghound. ean-Pierre?s reds are all destemmed and go through cold maceration for 5 days. Elevage is in in barrel (25% new) on the lies for one year. Racking is done just before hand bottling with no fining or filtering. As a group, Jean-Pierre?s reds are very forward and appealing. They are juicy and expressive, saturated with loads of sweet, ripe, red and black fruits backed by lush, round tannins.

Known to offer a magical balance of smoothness and freshness, Meursault's quality is hard to rival. The village lies in the middle of Côte de Beaune, just south of Volnay. Meursault is said to mean “mouse’s jump” because in the past the plots producing Pinot Noir and those producing Chardonnay were no more than a mouse’s jump from one another. Today the village is almost exclusively Chardonnay. A tiny bit of Pinot Noir is produced here with the best coming from Les Santenots on its northern side near Volnay.

While there are no Grands Crus, Meursault’s numerous acclaimed Premiers Crus can compete with any other top-notch white Burgundy. Some to know are Les Perrières, Les Genevrières, Les Charmes, Le Poruzot, Les Bouchères and Les Gouttes d’Or.

Meursault produces outstanding village level wines as well. In general great Premiers Crus and even village level Meursault (Chardonnay) have enticing aromas of lime peel, tropical fruit, crushed rocks, spice and hazelnut. On the palate there is a wonderful balance of brightness and a seductive length with flavors of white peach, pineapple and citrus.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
