Review

This Cuvée Latour is a generic Burgundy, which does not mean it is a wine of low quality, but quite the opposite. The appellation of origin Burgundy has a very strict regulation regarding the yields of the vineyards, as well as the production of wine. This in itself, already guarantees that the wines of this appellation have a medium-high quality. If we also add the strict controls of the Latour winery, which guarantee a rigorous selection of the wines showing higher typicity, we can be sure that we are facing a great Burgundy red wine. In addition, it should be noted that only vintages that have the sufficient character to ensure a favourable ageing are commercialized.

This initial wine is made with grapes from the vineyards of the south Côte d'Or, including superior Santenay and Auxey-Duresses in smaller proportions, with an average age of 30 years and soils of variable composition (from limestone and clay to granite). After fermenting in the traditional open deposits, it rests in barrels for about a year before being bottled. This Cuvée will remind us of the wines of Beaune, with a nice ruby ​​red colour and a rich aroma of red fruits and cherries, fresh and light, characteristic of Pinot Noir. Its body is wide and its bouquet complex, with a marked tannin and subtle herbal and wood tones. The end is very long and tasty, highlighting the good integration of all the elements and the subtlety of coffee memories.

Un cuveé suave pero con carácter

Las bodegas Louis Latour son un buen ejemplo de producir un vino de Borgoña de coste muy moderado (un cuveé de varios viñedos, pero con mucha calidad), que tiene todo el carácter y la suavidad de la pinot noir y el sello distintivo de los buenos vinos de esta región.

Ein wunderbarer Wein!

Ein wunderbar runder Burgunder, mit langem Abgang, dessen voller Geschmack sich nach dem frühen Öffnen der Flasche voll entfalten kann. Wir genießen ihn zum Essen, aber auch am Kamin.

Goloso

Buena introducción a los Borgoña. En España están influyendo hoy más estos vinos en los que la madera no se advierte, que los Burdeos, maestros de los Rioja de toda la vida. Sin embargo, a este Borgoña le falta cuerpo y personalidad, demasiado insignificante.

Perfecto para todos los dias

Aunque la cosecha del 2015 aun le falta asentarse un poco, abrirlo una hora antes para que pierda esa exaltación de vino joven y adquiera cierto grado de madurez, una vez abierto después de una hora es un vino perfecto de mesa con un toque de borgoña.
