Louis Latour Domaine de Valmoissine Pinot Noir 2019, Var, France

Domaine de Valmoissine is located on the site of the ancient monastery and university of Valmoissine at 500 metres above sea-level. This guarantees sunshine during the summer months whilst remaining cool at night and limits the possibility of spring frosts. The vineyard’s southern exposure gives the raisins perfect maturity at the same time as the Grands Crus of Corton. The yield is small in order to ensure perfect maturity and concentration of the grapes, the factors that create the best quality wines. This results in an elegant wine with remarkable finesse. Age of vines: 15 years. Soil: Clay and limestone. Fermentation: Traditional in open vats. Ageing: 10-12 months ageing in stainless steel vats. Tasting notes: Ruby color. Domaine de Valmoissine has a ruby color and a complexe nose with cocoa and ripe fruits from south of France, such as arbutus berry. The mouth is ample and round with silky tannins and undergrowth hints. Nice persistancy in the mouth.
