Louis Latour cooperage
Le Bourgogne de Louis Latour Rouge is a regional appellation made of 100% Pinot Noir. The grapes come from different villages of Côte d'Or: Marsannay in Côte de Nuits, Chassagne-Montrachet and Santenay in Côte de Beaune. The result is a perfectly balanced Pinot Noir, typical of Côte d'Or.
This wine has a deep garnet colour. Spicy floral notes can be found on the nose. On the palate it is powerful and round yet with balanced tannins. There are fruity flavours of rasberry and spice giving a wine which should be cellared for a couple of years before it reaches its peak.
