Louis Latour Cote De Beaune Villages 2016
Of a beautiful ruby color, the Côte de Beaune Villages has a fruity nose with aromas of cassis, raspberry and strawberry. In the mouth, flavours of cassis are present as well as notes of undergrowth. A round wine with mellow tannins on the finish.
The Louis Latour family first bought vines in the Cote de Beaune in 1731, with land in some of the top Burgundy vineyards. Cooperage was already at that period a family occupation.
