Louis Latour : Chevalier-Montrachet Grand cru "Les Demoiselles" 2012

 Incl. VAT & DPA case of 6 Bottles (75cl)
Purchased in 1913 from the widow of Léonce Bocquet, restaurateur and owner of Clos Vougeot, the plot of Chevalier Montrachet from the House of Louis Latour extends 0.51 hectares. The plot still retains the name in honor of the two 19th Century maids Adèle and Julie Voillot, daughters of General Beaunois, who were the owners of the property but died without marrying. The 2012 Chevalier-Montrachet Les Demoiselles comes in a pretty pale yellow robe. This wine is frank and open with delicious aromas of white fruit and almonds, accompanied by notes of vanilla. On the palate, it shows a lovely style with certain minerality. Holding for a couple of years will allow it to express its full richness.
