L Latour Pinot Noir les Pierres Dorées Coteaux Bourguignons 2016, Burgundy, France

Maison Louis Latour once again exports its Burgundian know-how outside of the Côte d’Or. “After the great successes of Ardèche and Var, we have decided to repeat the experience since 2010 by planting Pinot Noir in Southern Burgundy, in the heart of Beaujolais.” This project extends over more than 20 hectares today. The calcareous soil rich in iron oxide which confers him a very particular ochre color, as well as altitude, contribute to produce this surprising wine which associates richness and freshness with a beautiful aromatic complexity. This region offers beautiful argilo-calcareous soils, the plots selected by Maison Louis Latour form two islands and are situated on the villages of Morancé and Theizé. With a continental moderate climate, vineyards benefit from an ideal period of sunshine but the temperatures are relatively fresh between 280 and 400 meters in altitude. Bright and intense red color with red-garnet lights. On the nose, a gourmet blend of flowers, red berries and soft spices. On the palet, it is crunchy, round and ample. The Pinot Noir from the Pierres Dorées terroir offers a wine with a great freshness, underlined by concentrated black fruits aromas with a superb length.
