Luscious, Lively Latour-Giraud 2017 Meursault Cuvée Charles Maxime
February 14, 2020
A Note from Sergio

Happy Valentine's Day! While I typically reserve this eLetter for Italian wines, sometimes I get wines from outside of Italy that make me fall in love. Such is the case with today's wine from Burgundy's Domaine Latour-Giraud. Like the best family-owned estates in Italy, Latour-Giraud makes outstanding wines by showing a consistent commitment to tradition, by crafting wines that articulate terroir in a clear, individualistic and delicious voice, and by staying true to its own ideals. Today's Latour-Giraud Meursault commands attention, respect, and even adoration.

Owner-winemaker Jean-Pierre Latour is a dedicated, remarkable producer. He knows and loves his vines, and he does what he needs to do in the vineyards to ensure the best possible harvest. When the 2017 harvest came, he discovered that although his harvests were anomalous--some vineyards up, and some down--one thing was consistent: his grapes were insanely beautiful. Today, I'm delighted to bring you a new allocation of Jean-Pierre's showstopping 2017 Meursault Cuvée Charles Maxime. This wine comes from a slew of tiny plots that Jean-Pierre tends with maniacal attention and turns into a wine that manages to be rich and focused, sexy and precise.

I think you're going to love this Meursault--but get yours soon because we sold through our debut offer in a matter of days!

A flat-out sexy wine, the ’17 Meursault Cuvée Charles Maxime puts its super-ripe stone fruits front and center, framing them with lemon zest, toasted nuts, white wildflowers, anise seed, and a waft of petrol. Textured and lively, this wine nonetheless feels substantial and round, exhibiting the tensions that make Latour-Giraud’s 2017 releases so appealing. Named after Charles Giraud and Maxime Latour to honor Jean-Pierre Latour’s two grandfathers, this beautiful Domaine Latour-Giraud Meursault Cuvée Charles Maxime is an assemblage of several named plots, or lieu-dits, and it represents different soil types from Les Vireuils, Clos du Cromin, Limozin, Les Pelles, Les Corbins, and Le Carrouge.
