About the wine
Domaine Henri Latour is a 15-hectare estate owned and managed by brothers, Francois and Sylvan Latour, in Auxey-Duresses. They represent the 7th generation of growers. The vineyards are farmed sustainably and Guyot trained with de-budding in the spring. The fruit is hand-harvested and sorted in the vineyard and again when it arrives at the Domaine via a sorting table. Alcoholic fermentation for whites is done in barrel as is the malolactic fermentation for reds. This estate represents fantastic values from top to bottom.
Aging: 10 months in 2 to 4-year-old French Oak, 100% barrel fermented
Tasting Notes: Red currant and cherry fruit, savory herbs, slight note of straw in the nose. Lots of fruit on the palate, cherry, and currant, tree bark flavors fashioned in an easy, bright, fresh wine; good+ length with soil complexity on the finish. A real overachiever!
A whisper of oak plays on the nose of this wine, accompanying ripe cherry. The palate adds a notion of tart, red berry plus rounded, balanced ripeness. Fine tannins frame and hold everything in an elegant embrace ~91 Wine Enthusiast (v. 2018)
