Louis Latour : Bâtard-Montrachet Grand cru 2006

 Incl. VAT & DPA case of 6 Bottles (75cl)

Louis Latour’s 2006 Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru carries a good balance between quality and power on the nose. Rich aromas are combined with subtle hints of hazelnut and roasted coffee beans. This Batard-Montrachet  is a powerful Burgundy, with well-developed properties. A few years in the cellar will unveil many more qualities of this undoubtedly remarkable wine.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Effusive aromas of pink grapefruit, banana, peach, and pineapple rise from the glass of Latour's 2006 Batard-Montrachet (from purchased fruit). For all of the exotic ripeness suggested on the nose, and its breadth and its polished texture on the palate, this Batard still evinces some freshness as well as a suggestion of stony minerality. Bitter peach kernel and lemon pip add to the finish. I suspect this will always lack the interplay of flavors adumbrated by its Chevalier counterpart, but is a strong candidate for representing true grand cru quality over the next 6-8 years.
