Louis Latour Meursault 2009 Wine Review (NW)
Baked apple, melon, and spice notes on the nose
Full bodied and richly textured on the palate
Rich layers melt on the finish with more melon along apple and spices
Good white Burgundy is always a treat. This one is really ripe and rich, which isn't the typical style from this region but still offers flavors that show off how Chardonnay can perform. What brings it together is the amazing texture of the wine- both silky and richly layered. For me, that's often the secret sauce of white Burgundy. There's nothing quite like the texture of these wines. Of course, you'll pay for it. Expect a retail price around $40 for this one. Open it soon, and raise a glass!
