Bourgogne Pinot Noir is the regional appellation and the fruit can come from any part of Burgundy. At Maison Louis Latourwe select only the best grapes from the best vineyard plots to make this ‘cuvée’ which represents quality and value for money. This wine exhibits the characteristics of the great red Burgundies. Noble and full, it has a resplendent colour combining grace with vigour and associating strength with finesse. On the palate fresh raspberries are in evidence when the wine is young.
2013 Louis Latour Domaine de Valmoissine Pinot Noir IGP Var, France
On Sale $11.99
Domaine de Valmoissine is located on the site of the ancient monastery and university of Valmoissine at 500 metres above sea-level. This guarantees sunshine during the summer months whilst remaining cool at night and limits the possibility of spring frosts. The yield is small in order to ensure perfect maturity and concentration of the grapes, the factors that create the best quality wines. This results in an elegant wine with remarkable finesse.
