Louis Latour – Pinot Noir Domaine de Valmoissine, Côteaux du Verdon, 2013
Candied cherry fruits with a spicy perfume on the nose, a velvety textured palate brimming with ripe cherry and strawberry fruits laced with vanilla, leading to a rounded finish.
Domaine de Valmoissine is located on the site of the ancient monastery and university of Valmoissine at 500 metres above sea-level. This guarantees sunshine during the summer months whilst remaining cool at night and limits the possibility of spring frosts. The vineyard’s southern exposure gives the raisins perfect maturity at the same time as the Grands Crus of Corton. The yield is small in order to ensure perfect maturity and concentration of the grapes, the factors that create the best quality wines. This results in an elegant wine with remarkable finesse.
