2008 Latour Louis, Beaune Les PerrièresJul. 2010
A bright medium colour. Dark aromas of stones / stoned fruits that are ringed by a fine layer of sweetness – subtle and very pretty. There’s a hintof fat and a well-judged balance to the structure. Overall a rather understated but strikingly pretty wine. Maybe I should drink more Latour(!)
2005 de Montille, Beaune Les PerrièresApr. 2008
Medium colour with hints of purple. The nose starts wide, high-toned and with a rather candied fruit – quite interesting – and particularly so as it starts to develop a distinct creamy edge that’s not totally obviously from the barrel. In the mouth it is lithe and beautifully detailed – again with a creamy tinge that expands in the long finish – actually one phase during the evening shows this aspect just a little too much, but it slowly subsides to a more considered level. There is a lovely core of acidity with the ripe fruit, precise on the nose and in your mouth. A beauty whose star shines, wanes then shines again over about 3 hours that it lasted.
