Louis Latour Pommard 2018 - 750ml

$ 90.00

93 Points Wine Spectator 

A spicy version, revealing aromas of sandalwood and incense as well as vanilla framing the cherry and currant fruit. It tightens up, turning compact and crisp, on the finish, where a mineral element emerges. Best from 2025 through 2042.

Additional Details

Maison Louis Latour is one of the most highly-respected négociant-éléveurs in Burgundy. Maison Louis Latour is the producer of some of the finest Burgundian wines but has also pioneered the production of fine wines from outside of the confines of Burgundy. These wines from the Ardèche and the Côteaux de Verdon are slowly gaining esteem for their unmatchable quality outside of Burgundy.

All of the grapes from the vineyards owned by the Latour family are vinified and aged in the attractive cuverie of Chateau Corton Grancey in Aloxe-Corton. The winery was the first purpose-built cuverie in France and remains the oldest still-functioning. A unique railway system with elevators allows the entire wine-making process to be achieved by the use of gravity. This eliminates the threat of oxidation from unnecessary pumping of the must. Since 1985, Louis Latour has been selling the wines of its own vineyards under the name Domaine Louis Latour.

The village of Pommard is comfortably sandwiched between the town of Beaune and the village of Volnay. The name Pommard is derived originally from the name of a Roman goddess, Pomona whose sphere of interest included fruit and gardens. The name of Pommard can also be explained by the word "Polmarlum" from old French, meaning "swamp" because Pommard is in the limit of floodplain.

The wines of Pommard are quite different from those of the neighbouring villages. They tend to be deeper and more concentrated than Beaune or Volnay wines and have a sumptuous perfume and bite without being too tannic. This wine requires a number of years to reveal itself.
