The Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru from Maison Louis Latour is a varietal wine of Chardonnay produced in the Bâtard-Montrachet appellation.
At the tasting, this exceptional Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru 2003 from Louis Latour offers a splendid, bright golden colour in the glass. The nose delivers sublime aromas of honey, vanilla and hazelnuts. On the palate, this noble white wine expresses a great minerality. We note a superb edginess, while being very round, generous and fleshy. A suite of nuanced flavours reveal themselves, including fruit, spices, woody flavours and touches of hazelnuts and vanilla. To be enjoyed now, but with a great ageing potential that will allow you to keep it a little while longer.
Rich wafts of honeyed minerals emanate from the glass of the medium-bodied 2003 Batard-Montrachet (white). Oily-textured and thick, it coats the palate with caramelized minerals, baked pears, and spices. A fruity, straightforward wine, it is a candidate for drinking over the next 6 years.
