Louis Latour Meursault 1er Cru Blagny is a white wine cask made in the prestigious AOC Meursault 1st Cru Blagny / Côte-d'Or in Burgundy by Louis Latour with the white Chardonnay variety.
Wine growers since the 17th century, Louis Latour has a great reputation for making great wines in the best Burgundy appellations. It’s an independent family winery which, throughout its eleven generations, has conserved the essence of the project and become the largest farm of the Grand Cru vineyards in Burgundy.
Louis Latour Meursault 1st Cru Blagny comes from 20 hectares of Chardonnay planted on the slopes of the village of Blagny in Burgundy. A wonderful Primer Cru where conventional agriculture is practiced with rigorous control over the vineyard and limiting yields to 35 hl./ha.
Work in the cellar is also meticulous and limited. Once the Louis Latour Meursault 1st Cru Blagny grapes have been squeezed, they ferment in small oak barrels. Then, the wine ages for 8-10 months in oak barrels, of which 35% are new. Finally, the wine is only bottled those years the winemaker considers to be of superior quality.
Latour Meursault 1st Cru Blagny is a 1st cru characterized by its elegance and beautiful freshness. A very small production which can only be enjoyed in those truly exceptional vintages.
