Louis Latour Grand Ardèche Chardonnay 2021, Burgundy, France

Maison Louis Latour is one of the most innovative producers in Burgundy whilst maintaining its traditional image. In 1979, with a view to expanding the business the valley of the Ardèche river with its clay and limestone-based soils was chosen as the ideal location to produce top-quality Chardonnay wines. The Grand Ardèche comes from the best vineyards, carefully selected every year when harvesting begins. The grapes are pressed and the must is placed immediately in oak barrels made by the cooperage at Latour, where the wine will age for approximately 10 months, like the great wines of Burgundy. Fermentation: Traditional in oak barrels with complete malolactic fermentation. Aged minimum 10 months in oak barrels, 25% new. Tasting Note: Our Grand Ardèche 2021 has a brilliant pale yellow color with golden hues. Its nose, intense and complex, reveals aromas of grilled almond. Its mouth, ample and round, displays again notes of fresh almond with hints of roasting and a nice freshness in the finish. Nice length.
