    May 1, 2019 - side L Latour project. Lemony, fresh, little dough or autolysis notes. Short quick palate, fresh and zippy.

    May 1, 2019 - Still family owned, they produce from all regions of Burgundy. 60% chardonnay and 40% Pinot noir. The only producing Crement in Chablis. Part domaine and part negociant. Crisp and fruity and easy going, with some RS on the back ground. Grapes sourced only from Chablis.

    October 17, 2018 - Maison Louis Latour Tasting with Louis-Fabrice Latour (Capital Grille, NYC): Nose of toast and golden apple. Bubbles are quite fine and not very assertive. Tastes of golden toast, honey with apples, medium acidity and a hint of bitterness like lemon or grapefruit pith. The bitterness on the back palate keeps me from enjoying this more.

    August 11, 2018 - Quite nice, medium gold, bright fresh apple and citrus notes. Good bubble action. Served at the Pappas party.

    May 21, 2017 - Revisiting this Cremant de Bourgogne from Simonnet-Febvre that is based in Chablis and belongs to Louis Latour. Very approachable at €12 price tag. Medium nose of stewed apples. Palate with noticeable bitterness of citrus zest with slight minerality. Dosage 7g/l, but for my taste it is not very well integrated due to medium acidity.
    Young 20 yrs old vines. Traditional method. Ageing 24 months on lees.
    Increased my previous rating by 1 point.
