Vincent Latour comes from a family who have been making wine since 1792. The Domaine used to sell off their grapes, but when Vincent took over from his father in 1998, he decided to bottle all of their production.
Vincent Latour began turning heads in Burgundy and has gained fame with the nominations of “Winemaker of the Year” and “The Best Young Winemaker” by the press. In 2011, Burgundy wine expert, Allen Meadows, made his first visit to the Domaine and has returned every year since.
Nowadays, Latour handcrafts 5,000 cases, with a focus on Meursault, from his 8-hectares of vineyards.
On a vast plain slightly sloping, with a soil of limestone rich in ferruginous, the appellation Meursault does not produce Grands Crus, but very high quality Premiers Crus. Meursault wines are famous throughout the world for their golden color, their intense aromas of honey, lime, hazelnut butter and sometimes chamomile and hawthorn. Their silky and round taste enchants the amateur with a long finish reminiscent of plums and yellow bread spices. Their good freshness gives the wine a good aging potential.
Brilliant gold in colour, the 2019 Narvaux has aromas of white flower and almond. Powerful on the palate with great minerality. that requires some patience.
89-91 Points - Allen Meadows (Burghound) This is the first wine to display any appreciable amount of reduction and in this case it's enough to mask the underlying fruit. Otherwise the racy and almost painfully intense middle weight flavors that exude a bracing minerality that adds a sense of lift to the lemony and more complex finale. This is always one of Latour's better wines, and certainly at the villages level, and so it is again in 2019. *Outstanding*
