In 2001, probably due to the fact that Batard-Montrachet's terroir retains more water than Chevalier-Montrachet's, it is not uncommon to find Chevaliers that are bigger, denser, richer, and more fuller-bodied than Batards from the same producer. Case in point, Maison Louis Latour's liquid mineral-scented 2001 Chevalier-Montrachet Les Demoiselles overshadows its Batard in power, flesh, and breadth. Gravel, minerals, pears, spices, and liquified stones are encountered in this complex effort's intense character. Medium to full-bodied and velvety-textured, it has superb richness, density, elegance, as well as length. Projected maturity: now-2014. ||Maison Louis Latour appears to have faired significantly better than many of its fellow negociants in 2001. "We are very surprised, these were hugely acidic prior to malolactic fermentation but really good afterwards," said Jean-Pierre Jobard, Latour's winemaker. His boss, this firm's director, Louis-Fabrice Latour, added that "we've come to love the 2001 whites with time, they keep improving during elevage and we find that there is, in this vintage, a large step in quality between the village AOC wines and the premier crus."||Maison Louis Latour has a different importer in each state.
