Louis Latour Romanee Saint Vivant 'Les Quatre Journaux' Grand Cru 2020

Only 6 units available online.
Product description

Maison Louis Latour is one of the most highly-respected negociant-eleveurs in Burgundy. Maison Louis Latour is the producer of some of the finest Burgundian wines but has also pioneered the production of fine wines from outside of the confines of Burgundy. These wines from the Ardeche and the Coteaux de Verdon are slowly gaining esteem for their unmatchable quality outside of Burgundy.

Romanee-St-Vivant Grand Cru displays a dark garnet hue with aromas of spiced cherry and mint. On the palate we find an exceptional roundness, made up of great-structured tannins and notes of mocha and cherry.

98 Points - James Suckling

A dense, layered young red with extraordinary depth and power. Muscular, yet so balanced and polished. The ripe strawberry and cherry character is impressive with hints of hazelnuts and mushrooms. But it’s the texture that makes it great. It’s an indication of the superb structure. Try after 2025.

97 Points - Wine Enthusiast

Sumptuous black cherry flickers across the nose on this wine in tantalizing fashion, only to disappear again. The palate provides a firm but smooth channel for all this ripe, smooth and aromatic fruit. Compact, profound and structured, the velvety body also flexes with muscle.

92+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The king of the cellar is Latour's 2018 Romanee-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru Les Quatre Journaux, an ample and enveloping wine that wafts from the glass with aromas of cherries, wild berries, dark chocolate, rich spices and orange rind. Full-bodied, fleshy and muscular, it's supple and broad-shouldered, concluding with a long and expansive finish.
