aison Latour's winemaker described the 2000 whites as "less powerful than the '99s with lower sugar levels but very good acidities." 2000 was so clean that there was no débourbage (initial settling out of the gross lees), no bâtonnage (lees stirring) and the first racking was done after the malos were completed. Each wine is fined en masse, which is to say that all the barrels of a given wine are transferred to a large holding tank first and then fined. The whites are generally filtered before bottling by gravity. There is more new wood used here for the white grands crus than for the reds and can be as high as 90%. I tasted the wines in February and several of them had just been bottled.
