Louis Latour Meursault Blanc 2016, Burgundy, France

Situated just south of Volnay and Pommard in the Côte de Beaune, Meursault is the most extensive southerly white wine commune of the Côte-d’Or. The perfect south-easterly exposure and the stony, marl soil contributes 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 neighboring communes of Puligny and Chassagne. Fermentation: Traditional in oak barrels with complete malolactic fermentation. Ageing: 8 to 10 months ageing in oak barrels, 15% new. Barrels: Louis Latour cooperage, French oak, medium toasted. Tasting Note: “Our Meursault 2016 has a pretty pale yellow color with green reflections. The nose is intense with notes of white fruits and vanilla. Round and complex in the mouth, aromas of citrus and acacia emerge in the final. Beautiful minerality on the finish.”
