Latour-Giraud ‘Cuvee Charles Maxime’ Meursault 2010

Chardonnay from France - Burgandy
Review Date : 19-Jun-2013
Indigenous yeast barrel-fermented, the wine aged 18 months in 25-35% new oak. Pale straw-yellow colour. Distinctive hazelnut and almond nutty fruit aromas show with attractive purity and finesse. Layers of flinty lees and reductive elements lie under the fruit, and the nose possesses excellent intensity. Medium-bodied, the textures of fruit extraction show a little grip, but this is countered by delicately luscious and sweet nutty and stonefruit flavours. While clearly fresh, primary and lively with its directness and singular dimension, there are flinty lees and mineral undertones underlining the palate. Oaking is very discreet. The youthfulness of the mouthfeel is enhanced by bright acidity, and the finish has moderate focus, concentration and length. This is a very stylish and young Meursault with good interest that will develop over the next 5-6 years. 18.5/20 Jun 2013 RRP $81.99
