The Louis Latour Pernand Vergelesses Blanc 1ier Cru is the most intense chardonnay wine that I have tasted recently.

From vineyards around the village of the same name. These vineyards are located on the slopes of a relatively small hillside (Michael Fridjohn described it as a koppie), in the Cote d’Or region of the Cote du Beaune. 

The chardonnay grapes are handpicked, then pressed and aged up to 10 months in French oak barrels. The aging in the oak barrels gives these Louis Latour wines their unique taste.

The barrels are made inhouse by Louis Latour’s cooperage, from oak trees that are over 150 years. The wood is then aged outdoors for 2 years before being crafted into barrels. I have watched barrels being made and the method where they are toasted. This involves building a fire inside the partially structured barrel and toasting according to the wine master’s specifications for each wine, from a delicate toasting to more robust flavours.

In my glass the colour of the wine was a beautiful gold. This wine has an intense aroma of toast and almond. On tasting I also picked up vanilla. The taste of the wine lingered for a long time in my mouth.
