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. This wine comes from a lovely 1.3 hectare, single vineyard in Saint Romain averaging 40 years in age, which shouldn’t be missed.
Aging: 20% new oak for 11 month, 100% Barrel Fermented
Tasting Notes: A beautiful finesse nose of white flowers, lemon peel, and smoky calcaire; nice attack in the mouth, chalky mineral wraps around citrus fruit; On the finish you get orange skin oil and hints of oak.
This ripe, wood-aged wine brings together spice, rich white fruits, and a slash of oakiness. A fresh edge balances the warm fruits and creamy aftertaste. Drink the wine from 2022. ~90 Wine Enthusiast
