2014 White Burgundies....
"These are truly magnificent whites ... the purity and delicacy of the 2014s is quite unique...Classic white Burgundies in the best sense." winehog.org
Do not delay - critics are describing the vintage as the best for decades.
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.
Earlier in the week we received our 2014 allocation from the domaine. Worldwide demand, and small production, means that our allocation is a 25% less than last year. This is going to make supplying everyone a little difficult.
B uy now and you can take advantage of our Pre Arrival Prices and save 15% on the landed cost. Buy a full case of a single wine and we'll increase the discount to 20%.
Take a look at the Meursault Genevrieres - a huge score of 93-95 from Tanzer and the Puligny Champs Canet (92-95 Points). The complete range has been very well reviewed.
Meursault 1er Cru Genevrieres 2014
Normal Price $189.95
Pre Arrival Price $161.50
Case of 12 Bottles $1823.50
(=$151.96 a Bottle)
Vinous Stephen Tanzer: Pale yellow. Very rich, oily aromas of fresh apricot, spices, vanilla and toast convey excellent purity and depth. Plush but bright in the mouth, displaying terrific energy and lift to its orchard fruit and spice flavors. Very densly packed and classic. Finishes with a touch of tannic firmness and excellent lift. A real essence of Meursault. 93-95 Points
Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Champs Canet 2014
Normal Price $205.00
Pre Arrival Price $174.00
Case of 12 Bottles $1968.00
(=$164.00 a Bottle)
Vinous Stephen Tanzer: Pale yellow-green. Musky, laid-back aromas of lime and white pepper seem quite reserved for this cuvée and not at all exotic. Boasts lovely sucrosité countered by brisk acidity, with highly concentrated peach and nectarine flavors boasting terrific intensity and grip. Really explosive wine with outstanding purity and richness and a slowly mounting, reverberating finish. Latour believes that his 2014s are best suited for private cellars, while the 2013s are more appropriate for restaurants. He pointed out at this point in our tasting that he planned to take his maximum price hike of 10% for the '14s . 92-95 Points

Meursault 1er Cru Genevrieres Cuvee des Pierre 2014
We have less than a case of this remarkable wine available. Tanzer says "A compelling vin de terroir with an utterly palate-drenching whiplash of a finish." This wine is only available on allocation. For every 6 bottles of 2014 Latour-Giraud 1er Cru Charmes, Genevrieres, Perrieres or Champs Canet purchased you may buy 1 bottle of Genevrieres Cuvee des Pierre 2014. It is worth it!
