Puligny-Montrachet Vieilles Vignes 2017, Vincent Latour
£49.95 per bottle
Vincent took over from his father Jean in 1998 and now owns 11 hectares of vineyards in Puligny, Meursault and Chassagne. A new cellar is currently being constructed where Vincent will be able to house his interesting mix of oak casks; as well as the more usual 228 and 600 litre barrels, Vincent has a range of 2,500 litre oak foudres which were made especially for him by the tonnellerie Rousseau in Gevrey-Chambertin. These larger casks give wines with greater freshness and minerality, a hallmark of the estate.
