Description

Touches of matchstick character and the exotic add breadth to the cool and overtly spicy green fruit and citrus peel-scented aromas. There is more volume to the almost painfully intense middle weight flavors that possess excellent cut before terminating in a mineral-driven, bitter lemon-inflected and slightly warm finish that delivers fine length. The old vines are in evidence as this is a big and unusually powerful Genevrières.

The 2017 Vintage at Domaine Latour-Giraud

From Burghound:

Jean-Pierre Latour was exceptionally positive about the 2017 vintage, noting that “we finally obtained some yield but it’s not necessarily the way that you might think. What I mean is that we had better yields in 2017 than we did in 2016 in the regional and villages wines but about the same in the 1ers. And in Genevrières, we actually realized a bit less so contrary to what has been widely reported as an abundant vintage is not true for us. As to the wines, I view the 2017s as appealing to two different audiences, which is not always the case. Casual consumers will like the fact that the whites will be both approachable and enjoyable young as there is good mid-palate fat and the acidities are adequate but not really high. By contrast, connoisseurs will admire the wines for their elegance, finesse and transparency to the underlying terroir. Either way, to me they are concentrated, serious and ageworthy.” I entirely agree with Latour’s take on his wines as they are indeed lovely. Latour further noted that his 2017s were bottled between December 2018 and February 2019.
