The Vincent Latour estate is located in Meursault in Burgundy. Family property since the end of the 18th century, the Latours have been producing Meursault wines since 1792, a date for the less historic. Today it is their descendant, Vincent, who manages the estate with a masterful hand.
The Domaine Vincent Latour vineyard covers 12 hectares of vines made up exclusively of Chardonnay, a unique grape variety from the Meursault appellation. The estate also produces wines in the Bourgogne, Chassagne-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet and Saint-Aubin appellations. The estate evolves in organic farming in order to produce wines as close as possible to their terroir.
The Puligny-Montrachet Vieilles Vignes 2017 comes from a plot of 20 acres planted in 1959.
Manual harvest. Fermentation in barrels with 30% new barrels then aging on fine lees for 12 months and 4 to 6 months in vats.
After a year of aging in barrels, it delivers a perfect expression of Chardonnay, coupled with a great saline tension worthy of its terroir.
Notes of almonds, fresh grapes and vine flower make up a fresh and elegant frame of great dynamism. A very nice restitution of the Puligny terroir, signed by a great master of the genre!
