Winemaker Notes

This Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru has a lovely pale gold color and its nose reveals intense notes of toasty almond, vanilla and honeysuckle. Its mouth is well-rounded and has a great structure with oaky hints.

Pair with pan-fried sea scallops, saffroned monkfish or lobster thermidor.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 96
Wine Spectator
Enticing aromas of white flowers, lemon, pastry shop and toasted spices are followed by apple, mineral and spice flavors in this plump yet elegant white. Long and creamy on the finish, unleashing its payload gracefully. This should age beautifully, but decant now if you can’t wait. Best from 2021 through 2032. 150 cases made, 50 cases imported.
WE 94
Wine Enthusiast

This ripe, wood-aged wine is rich, with white and yellow fruits giving power and density as well as elegance. The wine’s normal minerality is muted in this vintage, pushing forward the ripeness and the generous texture. It will age well, ready to drink from 2023. Louis Latour Inc. Cellar Selection

JS 94
James Suckling
A very impressive nose with plenty of lemon and grapefruit on offer, as well as hazelnutty oak influence and some stony nuances. Very rich and quite exotic fruit on the palate, in the peach, nectarine and mango spectrum. Well cast oak warms and spices up the finish. Complex and generous Bâtard. Drink or hold.
BH 93
Burghound.com
A smoky array of both white and yellow orchard fruit is laced with hints of acacia blossom, matchstick and petrol nuances. There is excellent volume, concentrated and powerful to the broad-shouldered flavors that deliver outstanding length on the built-to-age finish where a touch of wood toast slowly emerges. There is an impressive level of dry extract, indeed this possesses and almost chewy quality.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2017 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru is performing well from bottle, bursting with aromas of orange oil, honeyed pears and toasted nuts. Full-bodied, rich and muscular while remaining lively and succulent, it's already drinking well.

Louis Latour Winery Video

Maison Louis Latour is one of the most highly-respected négociant-éléveurs in Burgundy. Maison Louis Latour is the producer of some of the finest Burgundian wines but has also pioneered the production of fine wines from outside of the confines of Burgundy. These wines from the Ardèche and the Côteaux de Verdon are slowly gaining esteem for their unmatchable quality outside of Burgundy.

All of the grapes from the vineyards owned by the Latour family are vinified and aged in the attractive cuverie of Chateau Corton Grancey in Aloxe-Corton. The winery was the first purpose-built cuverie in France and remains the oldest still-functioning. A unique railway system with elevators allows the entire wine-making process to be achieved by the use of gravity. This eliminates the threat of oxidation from unnecessary pumping of the must. Since 1985, Louis Latour has been selling the wines of its own vineyards under the name Domaine Louis Latour.

Louis Latour has been a leader in the environmentally responsible winemaking for over 15 years. Louis Latour has had ISO 14001 accreditation for Environmental Management Systems since 2003 and has been a member of the European association FARRE since 1998- a group of like-minded companies who seek to develop and promote sustainable methods of agriculture.

Cote de Beaune, Burgundy

A source of some of the finest, juicy, silky and elegantly floral Chardonnay in the Côte de Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet lies just to the north of Chassagne-Montrachet, a village with which it shares two of its Grands Crus vineyards: Le Montrachet itself and Bâtard-Montrachet. Its other two, which it owns in their entirety, are Chevalier-Montrachet and Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet. And still, some of the finest white Burgundy wines come from the prized Premiers Crus vineyards of Puligny-Montrachet. To name a few, Les Pucelles, Le Clavoillon, Les Perrières, Les Referts and Les Combettes, as well as the rest, lie northeast and up slope from the Grands Crus.

Farther to the southeast are village level whites and the hamlet of Blagny where Pinot Noir grows best and has achieved Premier Cru status.

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.
