Chambertin Grand Cru Cuvée Héritiers Latour 2009 Image

Chambertin Grand Cru Cuvée Héritiers Latour 2009

At the heart of a constellation of Grands Crus from Côte de Nuits is to be found Le Chambertin. The terroir of Chambertin is legendary for its exceptional richness due to a geological phenomenon called "alluvial fan”. This deeply complex terroir is characterized by brown calcareous soils. It breeds a powerful and complex wine with a long ageing potential, combining the robustness of Pinot Noir and the taste of the "terroir". At the end of the 19th century the Latour family acquired 0.81 hectares in the Chambertin Grand Cru appellation, forming a beautiful parcel extending from the top to the bottom of the hillside, closer to that of Latricières rather than Clos de Bèze. We took the name of Chambertin "Cuvée Héritiers Latour," as the parcel has been passed down through the generations of Latour family descendants.

Tasting Notes
The Chambertin “Cuvée Héritiers Latour” 2005 is a powerful and complex wine with full fruit aromas, reminiscent of ripe cherries. The palate also echoes this concentration of fruits and the acidity is well balanced. A length and quality that will evolve divinely with time. Definitely a wine to cellar for ten to fifteen years before revealing.
Ratings
93 Points: Allen Meadows, Burghound.com "A clear step up in aromatic complexity with a wonderful range of spice nuances, including anise, clove and cinnamon plus ripe dark and gamy fruit aromas where the sense of the sauvage continues onto the rich, full and sweet flavors that possess outstanding volume and power. This is a bruiser of a Chambertin but it's not rustic and I particularly like the mouth coating sappiness on the impressively long finish."
Food Pairing Notes
Venison stew - roasted female deer with pepper and mashed celery - Soumaintrain cheese
