2010 Louis Latour Chevalier Montrachet Demoiselles- 750 ml
Wine Critic Reviews:
Allen Meadows - Burghound | 94 BH
Leads off with honey, citronella and toast flavors, with an undercurrent of lemon and apple notes. Balanced, needing time for the refined structure to integrate. Subtle intensity and length build to a lingering aftertaste. Best from 2014 through 2022. 210 cases imported.

it's incredible softness is not something you find in every wineVery delightful. This Latour is a typical sample of the best Chardonnay grapes in Burgundy, and this parcel is particularly delicious and unique among other white wines. I've had a chance to taste this wonderful beverage at a blind-tasting event and I was astonished by its elegance and subtlety. It's smooth and well-structured, although it's still relatively young and I believe the honey aromas and flavors will develop even more in a decade or so. However, it's juicy and not as oaky as many other whites. Personally, I'm more of a red wine person, but this white was impressive for me and I would like to try it again sometime. Its incredible softness is not something you find in every wine.
really hard to resist and not drink it right awayAn extraordinary wine! When a family business has been successful for a couple of centuries now, you simply know there's something special about what they do. This wine is anything but average, one of the best grand crus I've ever stumbled upon in my life. An excellent representative of the Latour wines, you won't go wrong if you choose this one to be your introduction to these beautiful Chardonnay wines - the best of Burgundy. Their reds are also spectacular, but I've always preferred white wines, its vanilla and buttery notes and beautiful yellow fruit flavors that make the wine such a pleasant experience on your palate. I'm certainly going to get as many bottles as possible, this is the one worth keeping in my collection. It's really hard to resist and not drink it right away, though.
