Louis Latour Pinot Noir Pommard 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Of a lovely ruby red colour, the Marsannay 2011 reveals a nose of cherries and liquorice. It is round and elegant in the mouth with smooth 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

Middle of the road and acceptable for the price point. Little on the light side but nice if that's what you're looking for.

Very light. Surprisingly so for a red. I read somewhere that even people who prefer white wine would enjoy this pinot noir and I can see why. Very wet from start to finish, not at all dry or bitter.

This bottle of wine was part of a lot I bought on the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/26664 .Maison Louis Latour [www.louislatour.com] is a well known and respected firm of negociants that was founded in 1797 in Beaune and is still in the same family today.They also own and run their own vineyards in Burgundy and elsewhere.This bottle is their basic red Burgundy and is 100% pinot noir.I had it with a steak at the weekend.I thought it a reasonable bottle of red wine,there was fruit there,but it was not as subtle or as delicate as some other red Burgundies I have had.The Hautes-Cotes de Beaune I had last month and also formed part of this lot I bought on the website was a nicer bottle partly because it was a little less bland

Pronounced spicy floral notes on the nose. On the palate, fruity flavors of raspberry and spice with smooth tannins

This Bourgogne is clear ruby in colour and the smell and the taste are nicely balanced. Aromas of cherry stone and moss develop on the nose and in the mouth the tannins are still impressively showing.
