LOUIS LATOUR BEAUNE VIGNES FRANCHES 2015

Home   WINE   FRENCH WINES


Historically the owners of this area did not have to pay tax on the land, hence the name 'Vignes Franches' ('free vines'). The Beaune Premier Cru "Vignes Franches" parcel, important part of Domaine Louis Latour, is found mid-slope. The clay soils are scattered with small pebbles which allows for easy drainage of water. Here we find the same opulence as in neighbouring Pommard as well as an extremely pleasant fruit-forwardness even when young. It is one of the best Premier Cru vineyards of Beaune, producing a wine that is capable of ageing to perfection for a considerable period of time.

Subtle aromas of bark, mushrooms and light strawberries follow through to a medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and light vanilla-bean character, even chocolate. Glorious. Drink in 2020, but this is already gorgeous.

Exuding pure cherry and black currant flavors, this red is supple and succulent, with elements of earth, spice and bittersweet chocolate. Harmonious and long, with ample grip on the finish for aging. Best from 2020 through 2032.
