Meursault Chateau de Blagny Premier Cru Louis Latour, Côte de Beaune, Burgundy, 2013
100% Chardonnay vinified and matured in small oak barrels.
From the heights of Meursault, the Meursault Château de Blagny is a wine showing opulence and a mineral freshness coupled with rich, fat flavours that develop overtime. This wine has a pale gold colour. The nose is powerful and clean with citrus fruits and toasty aromas. It has a nice length with a mineral finish with a good potential for ageing.
"Apple sauce, cream, intense and really ripe on the palate with a touch of greengage fruit? Marked acidity too – full of character and vim. Large and lively." 17/20 AH www.jancisrobinson.com

An exclusive of Maison Louis Latour (monopole), the vineyards constituting the estate of the Château de Blagny are located high on the hillside overlooking Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet.
