Description :
The Grand Cru vineyard of Bâtard-Montrachet lies between the picturesque villages of PulignyMontrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet, home to the world's greatest white wines. Only a narrow strip of land separates this 11.86 hectare vineyard from the great Montrachet itself. Its 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. Located just below the Montrachet, "Clos Poirier" is a single plot of 0.85 hectares, easily recognisable as it has the only north-south facing vines in this specific vineyard site. The surface area of the appellation worked by Louis Latour is 0.43 hectares located in the eastern part.

The mouth is ample and round with fresh almond, vanilla and brioche notes. This wine offers a beautiful tension as well as a slightly salty finish. Nice aromatic persistence.
