2009 Louis Latour Montagny 1er Cru La Grande Roche
|This is a nice, elegant and very well presented White Burgandy, just slamming the point home that Chardonnay from Cote D’Or is hard to beat. And the $15.99 price tag at Costco is almost too good for this caliber of wine. But that’s why we shop there.|
An inviting floral nose, followed by clean and crisp flavors of apple, lemon, some citrus, kind of that stony/mineral taste that reviewers like to put in their notes (but that this region is also known for). And the finish is just rock solid. A beautiful wine from start to finish.
This one is going to land on our Silver Rated Wine List, and is a must buy for white wine fans. I reviewed the 2007 Louis Latour Pouilly-Fuisse a while back and loved that as well, but this stands out as a notch above that bottle for essentially the same price.
