Label: Stained and slightly torn
Overall condition: Very good
The Latour domain has existed in Meursault since 1792. It kept the Latour-Labille name until 2011 when it became the Vincent Latour domain.
The estate's wines are matured for 12 months in 600-liter demi-muids, a small proportion of which are new barrels. The goal is not to mask the aromas of the wine.
This 1er cru cuvée "Poruzots" comes from a plot planted since 1947 of only 0.87ha on clay-limestone soil typical of Meursault. Fermentation in oak barrels including 30% new barrels and aging for 12 months. Then 4 to 6 months in tank.
The 2003 vintage is particularly grandiose for the white Burgundies. From the opening you will feel its great power which will make you think of certain great wines from the north of the Rhône valley. It will not stop evolving during the tasting. You can therefore enjoy it as soon as it opens.
Tasted in feb 2021: Dégustation Meursault Poruzots 2003 - Vincent Latour
What immediately surprised us was its clear, crystalline color with a slight green reflection.
Menthol and hawthorn notes stand out on the nose but it is quite difficult to describe because in constant evolution, thereafter, more fat and buttery notes are felt.
The mouth is different, we can feel all the opulence and richness of the 2003 vintage, because after typical pastry notes, it evolves into a more "southern" style with a certain bitterness.
There is no doubt that it still has enormous aging potential.
