Louis Latour Batard 2000

Louis Latour Batard 2000 #2

Yellow-gold color.  Carnal, weighty nose, obfuscated by the reduction aromas.  Doesn’t want to blow off: even on day two, we still found ourselves trying to navigate past the undue sulphur treatment.   Underneath you can see a wine with some grand cru qualities: billowing, florid, honey-tinged pear fruit.  Masculine and sturdy, with an out-sized dimension.  Some stone minerality. Lingering, slightly blowsy finish, one typical of both climat and producer.  But we never felt we got at the soul on this one: we couldn’t get enough of a glimpse past the gunflint and struck match aromas velcroed to this grand cru.
