About this winery
The family-run company of Maison Louis Latour is one of the most highly respected negociants-eleveurs in Burgundy. Renowned throughout the world for the quality of its red and white wines, the company has built a reputation for tradition and innovation.
The Meursault 1er Cru Perrières reveals a yellow dress with pale golden hints. The complex nose offers notes of citrus, vanilla flowers and almond paste. The mouth is marvellous, it offers notes of brioche and almonds. A very nice persistence, with a lot of freshness on the finish.
Situated just south of Volnay and Pommard in the Côte de Beaune, Meursault is the most extensive southerly white wine commune of the Côte-d'Or. Surprisingly enough for an appellation of this quality, no Grand Cru exists, however the high quality of the 1er Cru more then compensates for this. The vineyard of Meursault « Perrières » tends to show a soil that is thinner and stonier than many of its immediate neighbours, producing what is arguably one of the finest example of the wine from this village.
