Louis Latour Meursault Premier Cru Château de Blagny 2015, 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. Surprisingly enough for an appellation of this quality, no Grand Cru exists, however the high quality of the 1er Cru more than compensates for this. An exclusive of Maison Louis Latour (monopole), the vineyards constituting the estate of the Château de Blagny are located high on the hillside overlooking Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet. Château de Blagny is the most important domaine in the commune. Traditional fermentation in Louis Latour oak barrels, medium toasted, with complete malolactic fermentation. Aged 8-10 months in oak barrels, 35% new. The Meursault 1er Cru “Château de Blagny” 2015 reveals a pretty yellow color with pale gold reflections. The nose offers notes of almond paste, vanilla, and yellow fruits. The mouth is ample, well-balanced and presents aromas of dried fruit on a fresh final.
