||Domaine Louis Latour Le Montrachet Grand Cru 2009
Pale yellow, this Montrachet has a floral nose. Still discreet but complex, it hints at its great future to come. On tasting it yields more, it is generous and the oak is present but harmonious. Great structure in the mouth. Tasted November 2010. By Louis Latour Official Tasting Note.
This is also quite reserved and almost aromatically mute though there is excellent power, weight and sizeto the big, powerful and concentrated flavors that possess almost painful intensity and despite the sheer scale of this wine, there is no sense of undue heaviness or blurriness as there is actually fine delineation on the stunningly long finish. This won't win any awards as the most elegant Latour Montrachet of the decade but fans of power Montrachet will love this and rightly so as it is extremely impressive. 95/2021+.

The potential here is enormous. This is a great wine, powerful and densely textured, at this stage packed with a steely character, but just waiting to unleash its beautifully defined fruit, to break out of the tight structure. Give it at least six years. By Wine Enthusiast, Sep 2011.
Candied apple, buttered brioche and honey aromas and flavors highlight this concentrated, intense white. Light tannins keep this firm through the finish, as it expands with honey and butterscotch elements.Drink now through 2023. By Wine Spectator, Aug 2012.
