2006 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru, Burgundy.
The 2006 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru Les Demoiselles of Louis Latour is elegant and subtly reveals white flower notes. The palate offers a harmonious structure, worthy of the most beautiful expressions of the great Burgundy white wines. The 2006 Chevalier-Montrachet Les Demoiselles carries a mineral finish. This worth-keeping Grand Cru can also be tasted already.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Latour 2006 Chevalier Montrachet Les Demoiselles (of which there are 11 barrels) displays a striking meld of sweet floral and stony mineral notes on the nose. White peach is accented on the palate by brown spices, quinine, toasted nuts, and wet stone. This displays flattering creaminess and admirable clarity and length, even though its 14+% alcohol generates a faint finishing heat. It seems quite capable of added complexity with bottle maturation and at least an 8-10 year lifespan.
