Louis Latour (375ml), 2010, Montagny 1er Cru « La Grande Roche »
White, Old World, Chardonnay from Burgundy
The family-run company of Maison Louis Latour is one of the most highly-respected in Burgundy. In 1997 they were admitted into the exclusive club of the Hénokiens, which only admits companies that are leaders in their respective fields, remain family owned, have a history of 200 years' experience and still bare the name of the founder. There are only approximately 30 of these companies in the world. In 1999, the sixth Louis Latour passed the running of the business into the hands of his son, Louis-Fabrice, who is a strong advocate of the family philosophy of integrating modern innovations with the best of established traditions. According to Louis-Fabrice, it is an unwritten rule in the family that each generation should leave something new for future generations. For the last decade Maison Louis Latour has been the unofficial champion of environmental care in Burgundy since joining FARRE (Forum de l’Agriculture Raisonnée Respectueuse de l’Environnement).
This wine has a clean light yellow colour. On the nose: intense aromas of acacia and honey. In the mouth: honest, fresh and powerful, with a nice length and subtle notes of apricot. It's floral and crisp with flavours of nuts and dried fruit.
Excellent as an apéritif.
