Press review
    • Côte de Beaune-Villages 2013 - Jewish Telegraph - December 2015 - "Perfect pinot noir"

      Louis Latour Cote de Beaune-Villages 2013 will pair with almost anything, including cheese. You'll spot cherry and blackcurrant lurking quite noticeably in this perfect pinot noir - £21 Spirited Wines. By Paul Harris (UK)

    • Côte de Beaune-Villages 2013 - Profile Magazine - December 2015 - "Lovely weekend treat"

      A ruby red pinot noir that benefits from a little airing in a decanter to achieve its full glory. Cheery and blackcurrant flavours dominate both nose and mouth in this lovely weekend treat. By Ellen Beardmore (UK)

    • Côte de Beaune-Villages 2009 - Chris Kissack - January 2011 - 14.5-15/20Less depth of colour than the rather vibrant and appealing Santenay tasted alongside. Nevertheless there is a bright youthfulness here. Rather more solid style on the nose, more like fraise des bois here, littered with cherry skins and blackcurrant leaf. A touch angular on the palate, rather spiky too, but the fruit quality is fresh and the presence of the wine in the mouth is lively and appealing. A good effort. (UK)
    • Côte de Beaune-Villages 2004 - The Guernsey Press and Star - 6th June 2009 - "A well-made wine"From a famous Burgundian merchant who makes wines from all over the region, this has a fragant perfume with juicy raspberry and strawberry fruit, balanced with subtle oak, acidity and light tannins. A well-made wine that's typical of the house style. Goes well with most red meats, duck and regional cheeses.
    • 1996 Côte de Beaune Villages - Sunday Independent - November 2002 :Soft and warm on the palate with good light tannins and a pleasant flavourful finish. Lightish ruby in colour with hints of brick at the edges. A lighter style of Burgundy but still showing class and good varietal character.
