Chevalier Montrachet Grand Cru Les Demoiselle
-- Weingut: Chevalier-Montrachet sits higher up the same hillside as the Montrachet appellation. In 1913 Domaine Louis LATOUR purchased this 0,51 hectare vineyard from the widow of Léonce Bocquet, who initiated renovations of a part of the Clos Vougeot Château. This vineyard carries the name 'Les Demoiselles' in hommage to the daughters of an early 19th century Beaune General, Adèle and Julie Voillot, who were the owners of the vineyard and who died without marrying. The Chevalier-Montrachet 'Les Demoiselles' 2012 has a pretty pale yellow colour. It is a sincere and tense wine with delicious aromas of white fruits and almond along with notes of vanilla. Beautiful in the mouth with some minerality, it promises great enjoyment after several years of cellaring.
