Description
  • The Grand Cru vineyard of Bâtard-Montrachet lies between the picturesque villages of PulignyMontrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet, home to the world's greatest white wines. Only a narrow strip of land separates this 11.86 hectare vineyard from the great Montrachet itself. Its gentle easterly-facing slope is made up of a deep, rich, gravelly soil which has a limestone base, world renowned for the production of high-quality Chardonnay. Located just below the Montrachet, "Clos Poirier" is a single plot of 0.85 hectares, easily recognisable as it has the only north-south facing vines in this specific vineyard site. The surface area of the appellation worked by Louis Latour is 0.43 hectares located in the eastern part.

Wine tasting
  • Tasting Note
    Of a gold nuances color, our Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru «Clos Poirier» 2019 unveils an intense nose with yellow peach, almond paste and honey aromas. The mouth is ample and round with fresh almond, vanilla and brioche notes. This wine offers a beautiful tension as well as a slightly salty finish. Nice aromatic persistence.

      The 2019 Bâtard-Montrachet Clos Poirier Grand Cru is turning out nicely, exhibiting aromas of pear, toasted nuts, orange oil and popcorn, followed by a full-bodied, layered and nicely concentrated palate. Though the vines here are still young, this appears to be a fine effort in the making. (William Kelley)
