Louis Latour Domaine de Valmoissine Pinot Noir 2016 75cl 13% ABV
A Burgundian-style offering produced by Maison Louis Latour, the grapes for this wine are sourced from the Vars region near the south-eastern Mediterranean coast, at similar altitudes to Latour’s own vineyards in the Côte de Beaune. A lovely ruby red colour with garnet tints, it has an intense nose with red fruit aromas and a slightly a spicy perfume on the nose. It is harmonious in the mouth, a velvety textured palate brimming with ripe cherry and strawberry fruits laced with vanilla, leading to a rounded finish with slightly young tannins which will soon become fine and silky-smooth. It is a wonderfully balanced wine. Try alongside roast game birds and rich poultry or cheeses.
