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.

  • 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.

    • Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru "Clos Poirier" 2020 - James Suckling - 96/100

      Lots of candied orange, flint and a touch of wet earth in the nose lead you into this bold and concentrated Batard-Montrachet. Rich and quite weighty on the full front and mid-palates, but this is a breeze blowing through it at the finish, even though it packs a tannic and chalky punch. The second vintage of this wine. Drink or hold.

      A more floral, and more elegant, nose is comprised by notes
      of ripe white peach, citrus and a hint of anise, along with just
      enough wood influence to mention. There is fine volume to the
      attractively vibrant mouth coating big-bodied flavors that
      retain a relatively sophisticated texture that carries over to
      the clean dry and lingering finish where the only nit is a touch
      of warmth. Lovely. 2028+

      The nose reveals spice and toast, yellow fruit and curry. The palate is rich and unctuous, with flavours of pears. It assumes its natural opulence, warm and generous. We liked its persistence showing hints of spice and aniseed.

    • Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru "Clos Poirier" 2020 - Wine Spectator Insider - August 2022 - 95/100

      Verging on oily in texture, this white exhibits lemon oil, sweet corn, poached pear and earth flavors. Bracing acidity keeps this on
      course, and the finish is slightly jumbled now, though long and resonant. Give this some time to integrate. Best from 2024 through 2032. - B.S.

    • Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru "Clos Poirier" 2019 - 94 pts - James Suckling

      A rich and powerful 2019 white Burgundy. Very smoky nose with notes of freshly mown hay, candied lemon and lemon curd. Bold and ripe with plenty of textural complexity, pronounced preserved-lemon character and chalky minerality. Interesting nutty and hibiscus notes at the finish.

      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)
