Bourgogne Pinot Noir Louis Latour 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Valmoissine is a high quality Pinot Noir grown in vineyards around the Cote du Verdon region. This stunning wine has a lovely plum and blackcurrant nose. It is soft and silky with purity of ripe plums and rich spice. Fresh and supple with elegant tannins.

The Latours have been vintners in Burgundy since the 17th century, slowly building a unique Domaine of 125 acres. Maison Louis Latour currently has the largest Grand Cru property in all of the Cote d’Or with a total of 71.58 acres. The vineyards extend from Chambertin in the north to Chevalier-Montrachet in the south and are solely planted with the two noble grape varieties: Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. All of the grapes from the vineyards we own are vinified and aged in the attractive cuverie of Château Corton Grancey in Aloxe-Corton. The winery was the first purpose-built cuverie in France and remains the oldest still-functioning. A unique rail-way system with elevators allows the entire wine-making process to be achieved by the use of gravity. This eliminates the threat of oxidation from unnecessary pumping of the must. Since 1985, Louis Latour has been selling the wines from its own vineyards under the name Domaine Louis Latour. The Latour family founded the ‘Maison de négoce’, an important shipping company, in 1797, and it is still based at 18 Rue des Tonneliers in Beaune to this day. The company is unique in Burgundy in that it is still family-owned and family-run, having been passed down from father to son for over ten generations. To celebrate our Bicentenary in 1797, we published a commemorative book and were admitted into the exclusive club of the Hénokiens. This club only accepts companies that are leaders in their respective fields, remain family owned, have a history of 200 years’ experience and still bear the name of their founder. There are only approximately 30 of these companies in the world. Maison Louis Latour ships its wines to over 60 countries worldwide. These world-class Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs can be found on the most famous dining tables around the globe. Read less

Here is a tart, tight little wine with a whiff of raspberry on the nose that works wonders as a foil for local PN producers (British Columbia, Canada). There is some structure though this is not a wine for the cellar. An excellent picnic and food wine that should be a benchmark for cool climate PN in the Pacific Northwest, my suggestion is to stock up for Christmas turkey. Good value A. C. Bourgogne. 88 points.
