  • Tasting Note
    In the glass this wine has a shining yellow hue and the delicate aromas which lift from it are youthful and fruity with hints of peach. In the mouth this balanced wine has a beautiful buttery feel and the peach aromas echoing on the palate are supported with floral notes. This lingering, supple and perfumed wine will benefit from a few months in the bottle. Tasted 06.02.04

Press review
    • Bourgogne Blanc "Cuvée Latour" 2020 - James Suckling - 91/100 pts

      A bright and fragrant Bourgogne blanc with plenty of fresh lemon-blossom, white-peach and pear character. Quite full-bodied for this humble category with an attractive balance of creaminess and freshness. Pronounced dark-mineral touch at the clean finish. Drink now.

    • Bourgogne "Cuvée Latour" 2014 - Decanter - December 2016 - Recommended

      Elegant aromatics leading to a simple palate that offers charming, polished fruit. 

    • Bourgogne blanc "Cuvée Latour" 2009 - The World of Fine Wine - March 2011 - 16.5/20Slightly fuller color than the Mâcon. Proper Bourgogne blanc scents of the côtes. Textured, spicy, opulent but balanced fruit—a very good glass of white burgundy at a kind price. By Michael Edwards (UK).
    • Bourgogne Blanc Cuvée Latour 2007 - Jamie Goode's Wineanorak - April 2010 - 87/100Nice lemon freshness to the nose. Sophisticated, fresh fruity palate with nice acidity. A very nice fruity style that's part Mâconnais and part Côte d'Or in origin.
    • 2003 Bourgogne Blanc - - September 2005 - 83 points :(100% Côte d'Or fruit). Ripe melon and straw aromas lead to round, sweet, rich and generous flavors crafted in a forward, easy to like style. Perfectly good if not better than that. 83/now
    • 2003 Bourgogne White de Louis Latour - Wine Spectator - July 31st 2006 - 86 points :Fresh and lemon-scented, this is full of lemon, lime and mineral notes. It’s fairly firm for a 2003, with a hint of grapefruit peel on the finish. Drink now through 2009. 3,200 cases made. –B.S.
    • 2002 Bourgogne Blanc - - July 2004 - 84 points :Amelon and white flower nose complements rich but nicely detailed flavors underpinned by racy acidity and a pretty touch of minerality on the moderately persistent finish. This will be ready on release. 84/now
