Producer: Louis Latour
Description: 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 in the heart of Beaujolais with the planting of 20 hectares of Pinot Noir. The calcareous soil rich in iron oxide gives a very particular ochre color, and the high altitude contribute to produce a surprising wine which associates richness and freshness with a beautiful aromatic complexity.
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. With a continental moderate climate, vineyards benefit from an ideal period of sunshine but the temperatures are relatively fresh due to an elevation between 280 and 400 meters.
A brilliant colour with ruby highlights, our Pinot Noir Les Pierres Dorées 2018 reveals aromas of blackcurrant, spices and liquorice on the nose. Ample and round in the mouth, blackcurrant comes along with notes of undergrowth. This wine shows elegant tannins and a lovely freshness on the finish.
