- BarrelsLouis Latour cooperage
- Tasting NoteDeep garnet. Pronounced spicy floral notes can be found on the nose and on tasting we have a wine which is powerful and round yet with balanced tannins. On tasting, fruity flavours of raspberry and spice reveal themselves giving us a wine which should be cellared for a couple of years before reaching its peak. Tasted 23/02/05.

- Le Bourgogne de Louis Latour rouge 2005 - Burghound.com - April 2007 - 84-86/100An expressive nose of raspberry, cassis and earth nuances combines with only slightly rustic barely medium weight flavors that offer better than average complexity and only a touch of structure. This should drink well on the early side and it's agreeably delicious already.
