Winemaker Notes

With its bright pale gold hue, this Montrachet Grand Cru 2018 offers a complex nose of grilled bread, yellow fruits, honey and acacia notes. With amplitude on the mouthfeel, it has fresh almond and yellow fruits aromas on the palate. The freshness on the finale offers a nice aromatic persistence.

Pair with great shellfish, lobster, fish, or foie gras.

JS 98
James Suckling
A magnificent white with such great depth of fruit and super intensity, showing flint, stone, nutmeg, thyme and light lemon rind. It’s so full with deep, deep depth that brings you down through the wine. Lasts for minutes. Needs at least four or five years to show what its full potential. Drink after 2024.
BH 94
Burghound.com
There is a phenolic hint (think nut or olive oil) to the smoky mix of petrol, apple, dried apricot and white peach aromas that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. I very much like the sense of underlying tension to the caressing, exceptionally rich and generously proportioned big-bodied flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the moderately structured and sneaky long finish. This is actually very forward for a young Montrachet, but I suspect that once it is in bottle it will tighten up considerably.

Wine Spectator
This white is ripe and luscious, revealing peach, mango, citronella and spice flavors, allied to a creamy texture. Accessible now, courtesy of its harmony, yet will develop nicely over the next decade. Drink now through 2030. 335 cases made, 65 cases imported.

Louis Latour, France
Louis Latour Winery Video

Maison Louis Latour is one of the most highly-respected négociant-éléveurs in Burgundy. Maison Louis Latour is the producer of some of the finest Burgundian wines but has also pioneered the production of fine wines from outside of the confines of Burgundy. These wines from the Ardèche and the Côteaux de Verdon are slowly gaining esteem for their unmatchable quality outside of Burgundy.

All of the grapes from the vineyards owned by the Latour family are vinified and aged in the attractive cuverie of Chateau Corton Grancey in Aloxe-Corton. The winery was the first purpose-built cuverie in France and remains the oldest still-functioning. A unique railway system with elevators allows the entire wine-making process to be achieved by the use of gravity. This eliminates the threat of oxidation from unnecessary pumping of the must. Since 1985, Louis Latour has been selling the wines of its own vineyards under the name Domaine Louis Latour.

Louis Latour has been a leader in the environmentally responsible winemaking for over 15 years. Louis Latour has had ISO 14001 accreditation for Environmental Management Systems since 2003 and has been a member of the European association FARRE since 1998- a group of like-minded companies who seek to develop and promote sustainable methods of agriculture.

Puligny-Montrachet Wine

Cote de Beaune, Burgundy

View all products

A source of some of the finest, juicy, silky and elegantly floral Chardonnay in the Côte de Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet lies just to the north of Chassagne-Montrachet, a village with which it shares two of its Grands Crus vineyards: Le Montrachet itself and Bâtard-Montrachet. Its other two, which it owns in their entirety, are Chevalier-Montrachet and Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet. And still, some of the finest white Burgundy wines come from the prized Premiers Crus vineyards of Puligny-Montrachet. To name a few, Les Pucelles, Le Clavoillon, Les Perrières, Les Referts and Les Combettes, as well as the rest, lie northeast and up slope from the Grands Crus.

Farther to the southeast are village level whites and the hamlet of Blagny where Pinot Noir grows best and has achieved Premier Cru status.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
