Domaine Vincent Latour Meursault Cuvee Saint Jean 2020

14% abv

Vol- 75cl

“Fermented and aged for 15 months in both 600 litre demi-muids and 2,500 litre foudres, this comes principally from two fine lieux-dits: Vireuils and Crotots. Ripe, honeyed fruit balanced with crisp acidity, textbook Meursault that will be delicious young but age gracefully. Drink 2023-2026.” Charles Taylor

“Fleshy, ripe fruit on the nose and palate. Nice acidity here but lacks the poise of some other wines. Weighty, full-throttle Meursault.” 15.5 jancisrobinson.com

£50.00inclusive of Duty and VAT

The Latour family has been making wine in Meursault since 1792. In 1998, Jean Latour gave way to Vincent and his mother, and they created the Domaine Jean LATOUR LABILLE ET FILS. Vincent's wife, Cécile, joined them in 2004. They had the opportunity to expand the estate with prestigious appellations such as Pommard, St Aubin village and 1er cru les Frionnes, Volnay, Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot as well as Meursault Village, Narvaux and Pellans.
In 2008, Vincent and Cécile created a trading company "Maison Vincent Latour" in order to complete the range with Puligny Montrachet, Chassagne Montrachet les Benoîtes, St Romain, Corton Charlemagne and Meursault 1er Cru Genévrières.
In 2011, following the departure of Vincent's mother, the estate changed its entity and took the name of its winemaker, becoming Domaine Vincent Latour.

The wine is aged for 12 months in oak barrels, then 4 to 6 months in vats. No batonnage is used. Few new barrels are used to avoid completely masking the subtle flavours and aromas of Meursault.
The small amount of oak becomes almost imperceptible and contributes, in the case of Meursault, to its nutty, toasty bouquet and complex ripeness. Large 600 litre barrels (demi-muids) are used to produce straight and pure wines with great elegance and minerality.
