Louis Latour Chambertin 'Cuvee Heritiers Latour' Grand Cru 2020

Only 4 units available online.
Product description

At the heart of a constellation of Grands Crus from Cote de Nuits is to be found Le Chambertin. The terroir of Chambertin is legendary for its exceptional richness due to a geological phenomenon called an alluvial fan. This deeply complex terroir is characterized by brown calcareous soils. It breeds a powerful and complex wine with a long ageing potential, combining the robustness of Pinot Noir and the taste of the "terroir". At the end of the 19th century the Latour family acquired 0.81 hectares in the Chambertin Grand Cru appellation, forming a beautiful parcel extending from the top to the bottom of the hillside, closer to that of Latricieres rather than Clos de Bèze. We took the name of Chambertin "Cuvee Heritiers Latour", as the parcel has been passed down through the generations of Latour family descendants.

Our Chambertin Grand Cru "Cuvee Heritiers Latour" 2020 has a deep, dark color with ruby hues. Its nose reveals notes of undergrowth combined with liquorice. It has a nice roundness in mouth which reveals silky tannins with mocha and licorice aromas.

Pair with venison stew, roasted female deer with pepper and mashed celery, or soumaintrain cheese.
