By Duane Pemberton
Winery website:  http://www.louislatour.com

Louris Latour is a world-renowned producer from the Burgundy region of France and has a pedigree of offering-up wines that are terroir-driven, yet are very affordable.

 

Technical Data:

  • Region: Mostly Côte d’Or
  • Varietal: 100% Pinot Noir
  • Fermentation: Open vat fermentation
  • Aging: 12 months in oak barrels
  • Soil type: Clay and limestone
  • Price: $16

Nose: Spiced, dried cherries, apple core, white peppercorns, roasted veggies, casis, black liqourice and an old, leather-bound book.

Taste: A very clean combination of rhubarb, cran-cherry, white pepper, bitter cocoa, cigar box and clove. A very elegant, food-friendly pinot that for the money should not be over-looked – a really nice value for a red burgundy.

W.E.P. Rating: 110%
