Côte De Beaune
Jean-Pierre Latour has 10 hectares under vine in Meursault. Wonderfully sited vineyards, low yields, brilliant winemaking and no fining or filtration, make this one of the most exciting domaines in the village at present.
The Meursault Cuvée Charles Maxime (a blend of Les Vireuils, Les Corbins and Les Pelles) is plump, rich and generous, whilst his Genevrières (of which he has 2.5 hectares) and Charmes are absolutely stunning.
The whites are fermented and matured in barrel (around 1/3 new) for 15-16 months.
His red wines are also excellent. Following a pre-fermentation cold maceration and fermentation at a maximum of 33°C, the reds receive a cuvaison of 18-29 days. The wines are then matured in barrique (20-25% new) for between 14 and 16 months.
