Nuits St Georges, Louis Latour, Côte de Nuits, Burgundy, France, 2017
Grape: 100% Pinot Noir, 30 years average vine age, clay & limestone soils, hand picked fruit, fermentation in open vats, 10-12 months ageing in oak barrels (20% new).
Nuits-Saint-Georges is the most southerly village of the northern Cotes de Nuits. 97% of the appellation's production is red wine with just 3% white.
An intense, deeply coloured wine, showing pronounced, complex fruit of cherries, blackcurrants and violets, with truffles and spices. Subtle and integrated oak flavours on the palate with peppery notes, this wine is medium-bodied, concentrated and admirably long on the finish.
"Very pretty red with spice, dried meat and dark fruit. Medium body and light tannins that are precise and focused. Shows tension. Just before bottling. Drink from 2020." 91/100 points, James Suckling, February 2019
Drink with roasted leg of mutton, rib steak, game birds, or soft & mature, washed rind, cow's milk cheeses including Epoisses, Langres & Soumantrain.
