Louis Latour Meursault 2018

About the Wine:
On the nose, aromas of exotic fruits and vanilla are released. On the palate, these aromas are enhanced by notes of honey-a powerful wine with very nice length. Recommended pairings include prawns, avocado, grilled sea bass, stew of veal in a cream sauce, and Beaufort cheese. Cellaring potential is about 3 to 5 years. 
About the Producer:
The Maison was established in 1797 and the very first exports were in 1815. This estate supplied royalty back in the mid-19th century. It is an estate with immense history.  They pride themselves in producing wines that genuinely reflect their individual terroirs. 
Technical Info:
Meursault 2018, 93/100, James Suckling
Region: Côte de Beaune
Village: Meursault
Appellation: Meursault
Grape variety: Chardonnay
The Vine: Average vine age 25 years
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. The perfect south-easterly exposure and the stony, marl-limestone soil contribute greatly to the remarkable finesse of which the wines of Meursault are capable. Typical Meursault tend to be very full, mellow wines and mature somewhat sooner than the wines from the neighboring communes of Puligny and Chassagne.
Vinification & Ageing: Traditional in oak barrels with complete malolactic fermentation. Ages for 8 to 10 months ageing in oak barrels, 15% new from the Louis Latour cooperage, with French oak barrels that are medium toasted.
