Louis Latour Meursault Premier Cru 'Château de Blagny' 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. 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” 2016 shows a pretty pale yellow color. The nose is very aromatic with notes of vanilla, almond and linden. It is rich in the mouth, of a beautiful length with a certain tension on the finish.
