Louis Latour Meursault 2011

Louis Latour Meursault 2011

750ML    
Sku: 040777

Situated just south of Volnay and Pommard in the Cote de Beaune, Meursault is the most extensive southerly white wine commune of the Cote-d’Or. The perfect south-easterly exposure and the stony, marl soil contribute greatly to the remarkable finesse of which the wines of Meursault are capable. Typical Meursault tend to be very full, mellow wines and mature somewhat sooner than the wines from the neighbouring communes of Puligny and Chassagne.

Tasting notes
A delightful golden colour, this wine has subtle notes of green apples and pears. On the palate it reveals a citrus fruit and lemony character, with delicate notes of white fruits. Typical Meursaults tend to be very full, mellow wines and mature somewhat sooner than the wines from the neighbouring communes of Puligny and Chassagne. The wine is full in the mouth and well-structured showing exotic fruitiness and a nutty, spicy character.

Rating
2008: 88 Points - Alan Meadows, BurgHound: "A touch of sulfur from the recent bottling will dissipate in time and doesn't overtly disturb the expressiveness of the hazelnut, pear and acacia blossom suffused nose. The medium-bodied flavors are rich, round and quite generous while delivering good if not special length. Note that this is rather forward and should drink well young."
