Description

Louis Latour Batard Montrachet Grand Cru Clos Poirier is a white Burgundy. Clos Poirier is a small, single plot of 0.85 hectares, which is easily recognisable as it has  the only north-south facing vines in this specific vineyard site. 

The Grand Cru vineyard of Bâtard-Montrachet itself lies between the picturesque villages of Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet. The region is regarded as producing some of the world’s greatest white wines.

The Latour family have long been established in Burgundy’s wine trade. They began as vine growers in the village of Aloxe-Corton as early as 1768 and went on to establish today’s business, Maison Louis Latour in 1797. Today they are one of the region’s most famous names creating wines from their own 50 hectare domaine in the Côte d’Or and from grapes and wines purchased through the negociant arm of the business. The company has been in family ownership for 11 generations and is now led by the 7th Louis Latour. He is ably supported by Chief winemaker Jean Charles Thomas, and Denis Fetzmann and Boris Champy who run the Domaine.

The Batard Montrachet vineyard covers an area of 12.37 hectares and only a small lane separates it from the vineyard of Montrachet itself. The vineyard is planted on a gentle easterly-facing slope is made up of a deep, rich, gravelly soil which has a limestone base, world renowned for the production of high quality Chardonnay fruit.

The grapes for Louis Latour Batard Montrachet Grand Cru Clos Poirier come from vines with an average age of 15 years old. They are harvested by hand. On arrival at the winery they are destemmed and undergo a traditional Burgundian fermentation in French oak barrels with complete malolactic fermentation. After fermentation, the wine is aged for 10 to 12 months in 100% new French oak, medium toasted, barrels from Louis Latour’s own cooperage. The wine is fined with bentonite and filtered prior to bottling.
