Description
  • 'Clos des Toisièrese' used to be a small quarry. 'Toisières' is derived from the word 'toit' (roof), and refers to the huge flat stones coming from this quarry sometimes used as roofs. Maison Louis Latour has the monopoly on this climat situated on the higher south-east facing slopes in the pretty little village of Monthélie, hidden away between the vineyards of Meursault and Volnay. Despite its imposing neighbours, Monthélie produces highly aromatic, robust red wines such as this « Clos des Toisières ».

  • Tasting Note
    The Monthélie "Clos des Toisières" has a superb bright ruby red colour and a slightly smoky, almost coffee, nose with aromas of blackberry too. This is still quite tight on the finish.
