Louis Latour Cote de Nuits Villages 2020
The Côtes de Nuits Village has a brilliant ruby color with a complex nose of black-currant and clove. Fresh and long on the palate, this wine carries flavors of coffee, grilled hazelnuts, and ripe black-currant.
Our Cote de Nuits-Villages encompasses the villages of Premeaux-Prissey, Comblanchien and Corgoloin just south of Nuits-Saint-Georges. The vineyards benefit from east-facing hill-slopes which act as a sun-trap to create maximum ripeness in the grapes. The complex soil composition of these villages includes varying proportions of marl and shale clays which produce wines of great character and charm. Maison Louis Latour's Cote de Nuits Villages is an excellent introduction to the wines of the Cote de Nuits.
The Latour family founded the ‘Maison de négoce’, an important shipping company, in 1797, and it is still based at 18 Rue des Tonneliers in Beaune to this day. The company is unique in Burgundy in that it is still family-owned and family-run, having been passed down from father to son for ten generations over 200 years. Maison Louis Latour ships its wines to over 180 countries worldwide. These world-class Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs can be found on the most famous dining tables around the globe.
