The exciting new 2012 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 you will find Latour-Giraud has two wines in Burghound's top 10 Meursaults from 2011 and his 2009's and 2010's perform similarly well. There are some well known names, that sell for much more money, scored considerably lower.
We have recently received advice of our allocation for the 2012 vintage. 2012 is a small, high quality, vintage and I guess I should be pleased to have received the same quantities as we did in 2011. However, in such a good vintage it won't be anywhere near enough.
Prices have risen at the domaine but the biggest problem we have to contend with is the drop in the value of the Australian Dollar against the Euro. So 2012 is a little more expensive than 2011 but the quality is spectacular. However, if you buy now you can take advantage of our Pre Arrival Prices and save 15% on the landed cost.
