DOMAINE LATOUR-GIRAUD, JEAN-PIERRE LATOUR
Jean-Pierre Latour has 10 hectares under vine in Meursault. Wonderfully sited vineyards, low yields, brilliant winemaking and no fining or filtration, make this one of the most exciting domaines in the village at present.
The Meursault Cuvée Charles Maxime (a blend of Les Vireuils, Les Corbins and Les Pelles) is plump, rich and generous. The wine is fermented and matured in barrel (around 1/3 new) for 15-16 months. The very fine 1er Cru Genevrières is from two perfectly sited parcels, comprising 2.5 hectares at the top of the vineyard.
