Tasting notes

Bright and intense red colour with red-garnet lights. On the nose, we discover a gourmet blend of flowers, red berries and soft spices. On the palet, it is crunchy, round and ample. The Pinot Noir from the Pierres Dorées terroir offers a wine with a great freshness, underlined by concentrated black fruits aromas with a superb length.

Viticultural notes

This region offers beautiful argilo-calcareous soils, the plots selected by Maison Louis Latour form two islands and are situated on the villages of Morancé and Theizé. With a continental moderate climate, vineyards benefit from an ideal period of sunshine but the temperatures are relatively fresh between 280 and 400 meters in altitude.

Winemaking notes

Traditional fermentation in open vats. Ageing lasts 10 to 12 months in stainless steel vats and French oak, medium toasted barrels. Louis Latour cooperage.

February 2018

An attractively light and charming pinot noir with some nice, warm and dry tannins. There is also friendly acidity for this often-tart category. Drink now or in 2019. Only the second vintage of this wine.
