Product guide note

This wine is from the village of Meursault in Burgundy and is a classic Meursault in just about every way: nutty, toasty oak flavours alongside citrus, apple and melon fruit. The grape variety used is Chardonnay but the wine has a much fuller style than Chablis.

Production information

Producer: Domaine Latour-Giraud

Jean-Pierre Latour is your archetypal small Burgundian grower. A visit to the winery involves little more than popping under the garage to the cuverie and barrel cellar, squeezing in amongst the tanks to find a perch for your glass. The quantities here are tiny, with Jean-Pierre’s vines split amongst over thirteen vineyards in Meursault, Puligny, Pommard and Volnay.
