Tasting notes

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

Viticultural notes

Maison Louis Latour once again exports its Burgundian know-how outside of the Côte d'Or. After the great successes of Ardèche and Var, we have decided to repeat the experience since 2010 by planting Pinot Noir in Southern Burgundy,in the heart of Beaujolais. 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.

Winemaking notes

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