Latricières-Chambertin

2017

This vineyard is located at the very top of the Latricières apellation. Bordered by woods on three sides, with a very rocky soil, this half-hectare vineyard produces fresh, mineral wines. The block is divided in two parts, an old one of about 60 years old and a younger part which is about 25 years old.  100% whole cluster fermentation. 80% new oak.

"The 2017 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru, which includes 100% whole bunches, was 50% reduced by hail and thus cropped at 18hl/ha. It has a very attractive bouquet with more black fruit than red, hints of tobacco and vervain tea and an almost granitic aroma underneath. The palate is beautifully balanced and quite savory in style, suggesting touches of meat juices infusing the red berry fruit. This feels very natural but is certainly one of the most powerful crus from the domaine on the finish. Superb."

"Reduction dominates the fruit today. Otherwise there is almost painful intensity to the borderline pungently mineral-driven middle weight plus flavors that possess an ultra-sleek mouthfeel before concluding in a strikingly long and youthfully austere finale. This is very Latricières in basic character and like the Echézeaux, a very promising wine but also clearly built to age."
