This week's wine of the week is a white wine for a chilly winter's day...
There is something about white Burgundy that feels warm and festive! Perhaps it's the rich and savory dishes that it pairs so well with. The Latour-Giraud Meursault is crisp and focused with bright acidity balanced with a rich, viscous mouthfeel. Cozy flavors of spiced pear and hazelnut mingle beautifully with notes of peach and a clean mineral finish.
The Latour-Giraud estate has been established in the village of Meursault for many generations. Focused primarily on Meursault, the estate owns an impressive range of Premier Cru and Villages vineyards between 20 and 50+ years old. Winemaker Jean-Pierre Latour arrived in the 1990's and this meticulous and forward thinking man lead the estate through an epic transformation. In a major commitment to improving quality, Jean-Pierre upgraded the quality of his new barrel program and adopted organic agricultural practices in the vineyards. He cut yields and began to master the art of non-interventionist wine-making. These wines are classic white Burgundies: intense and concentrated, stylish and powerful, layered and balanced!
