The most overlooked of the Chambertin Grand crus, in my opinion. It has the greatest slope of any of them, right up on the woods. It is thus cooler and stonier, virtually always yielding tiny millerande grapes affectionately referred to as the “caviar” because they are tiny, precious, and delicious. In super fine filigree detail (think lacy intricacy), I adore this. You will never find as good a Latricieres as this for the money. Come see what i’m talking about.
“(from a .67 ha parcel of extremely old vines). This is aromatically more complex if not more elegant than the Chapelle with its array of spiced plum, exotic tea, dark currant and subtle sauvage scents. The restrained and beautifully delineated flavors also seem to be constructed on a base of liquid minerality that adds lift to the very firm, intense, linear and moderately austere finish that delivers outstanding persistence. This too will need at least 12 to 15 years to arrive at its full potential. (91-94)/2025+”
