The exciting new 2013 vintage from one of Meursault's Stars...
It has been exciting to follow the path of Domaine Latour-Giraud over recent years. This Domaine, run by Jean-Pierre Latour, has risen to the top echelon and now rates alongside the big names as a top source for aromatic, mineral and racy Meursault. (No coarse, heavy, fat wines here!).
Take a look at Burghound and Tanzer and you will find Latour-Giraud regularly has wines in the top ten. There are some well known names, that sell for much more money, scored considerably lower.
This year Stephen Tanzer, now at Vinous, describes the 2013 Genevrieres Cuvee des Pierres as such "Stunning potential here, one of my early candidates for premier cru of the vintage."
We have just received our allocation so please don't delay - quantities of some wines are very small.

Vinous Stephen Tanzer: (malo done and sulfited): Bright, pale yellow. Very pure but shy aromas of orange zest, pineapple, lemon, acacia flower and stone. Boasts outstanding volume and breadth to its unctuous fruit but penetrating limey acidity (4.6 grams per liter, according to Latour) gives definition to the middle palate and cuts through the wine's sucrosite. Wonderfully classy, full Genevrieres with a gripping, tactile, very long finish that leaves the mouth perfumed. This may yet surpass the terrific 2012. 92-94 Points
