Louis Latour Beaune 1er Cru "Perrieres" 2015, Burgundy, France

In this area which is in the North of the appellation of Beaune and exposed to the East, you can find parts of the faces of old limestone quarries with various fine limestones. The clay-limestone soils of Perrières, which are shallow and poor due to the steep inclination, produce a powerful and structured red wine with a perfect ageing potential. Fermentation: Traditional in open vats. Ageing: 10-12 months ageing in oak barrels, 35% new. Barrels: Louis Latour Cooperage, French oak, medium toasted. Tasting Note: Intense in color, this wine has a complex yet elegant nose of blackcurrant, liquorice, blackberry, almond paste and undergrowth. The mouth is beautiful with notes of black cherry, moka and mellow tannins. An incredible persistence!
