Louis Latour 2006 Chardonnay (Montrachet)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $400

It’s the complexity that dominates this wine from what is arguably the greatest Chardonnay vineyard in Burgundy. All the fruit elements are wrapped up in a tense, tightly strung structure, and then surrounded by superrichness. Acidity adds to the mix, a pure, green plum fruit character. All in all, a great wine.

Louis Latour 2006 Chardonnay (Chevalier-Montrachet)

  • Cellar Selection

Rich and mineral at the same time, this deliciously powerful wine is open and generous. The structure is equally impressive, a steely core of minerality and tense stone fruits. The wood shows through with spice, but remains discreet. Age for many years.

Louis Latour 2002 Chardonnay (Corton-Charlemagne)

  1. $100

Immense power lies behind the initially seductive nature of this wine. It is powerful, ripe, complex, full of tropical fruits, and still at first it seems to be restraining this intensity. Give it 10 years and it will be mind-blowing.

Louis Latour 2013 Chardonnay (Corton-Charlemagne)

  • Cellar Selection

There was less than half the normal production of this flagship white in 2013. However, the wine conveys the rich character that is associated with this powerful cuvée. It has density, ripe structure and a background of toast and honey. The wine needs to age for several years, drink from 2020.

Louis Latour 2011 Chardonnay (Montrachet)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $520

This is the big one, one of the most treasured white wine vineyards in the world. And the wine is magnificent, balanced with restrained power and style. Yellow fruits are shot through with acidity that conveys a nervy texture and an intense, concentrated character. This needs many years; don’t drink before 2020.

Louis Latour 2009 Chardonnay (Montrachet)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $440

The grandest of all white Burgundy vineyards, Montrachet has produced a powerful, great wine, with impressive ripe, dense fruit. There is still elegance, a sense of proportion, but the opulence of the Chardonnay here is impossible to resist.

Louis Latour 2008 Les Demoiselles Chardonnay (Chevalier-Montrachet)

  • Cellar Selection
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $275

A flinty, mineral-charactered wine, with smoke and toast flavors dominant at this stage. The power and richness are there in the background, while the white fruits fit behind the structure. It’s obviously for the long haul, a powerful, tight wine.

Louis Latour 2013 Chardonnay (Bâtard-Montrachet)

  • Online Exclusive

This is a beautiful wine, full of ripe yellow fruits, steely acidity and a juicy character that comes from the apple and apricot fruit flavors. While there is a firm layer of toast from the wood aging, the wine is rich, tight and full of acidity. This structured wine needs many years, so drink from 2020.
