2016 Domaine Latour Giraud Meursault Les Narvaux
1 in stock
The famous 16-hectare Narvaux climat is situated in the highest vineyards of the village, at the tip of the top premiers crus. Grown on thin, poor soil and substrata (multiple layers of lava), the wine takes the best features of the soil. The wine has fantastic finesse and aromatic complexity, while the palate has abundant elegance, complexity and length.
I’m not sure if Latour has yet been properly recognized as one of the most thoughtful and intelligent producers in the village. Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media
Lighter yellow than the Charles Maxime but a bit hazy. Deep, rich nose conveys good lemon-limey lift. This, too, boasts a strong impression of acidity, with salty minerality contributing to its tactile, chewy texture. But this wine still needs the rounding influence of more élevage.88-91 points.
