Louis Latour Meursault Premier Cru Goutte d'Or 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. Meursault ‘Goutte d’Or’ is the first Premier Cru found when leaving the village in the direction of Puligny-Montrachet. The parcel of vines was given this name (‘drop of gold’) because of the quantity of flint in the soil. These flints have both the shape and color of ‘drops of gold’. Entirely like the drops of wine which this land produces! The wine itself is all one would expect it to be with a powerful nose and rich palate. The wine preferred by Thomas Jefferson. Traditional fermentation in oak barrels with complete malolactic fermentation. Aged 8-10 months in oak barrels, 50% new. Pale gold in color with a very expressive nose of almonds, brioche and vanilla. Nice roundness in the mouth with mellow notes of almonds and citrus. Finesse and beautiful minerality in final.
