Beaune Vignes Franches 1er Cru 2012

Beaune Vignes Franches 1er Cru 2012

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.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Intense garnet red, the Beaune 1er Cru "Vignes Franches" 2012 reveals a bouquet full of cherry and liquorice aromas. Red and black fruits dominate in the mouth accompanied by cocoa and spiced notes. This is a full-bodied wine which is well-balanced with lots of power and lovely tannins on the finish.
Ratings
87 points - Allen Meadows, burghound.com "A more deeply pitched nose features notes of both red and dark currants and plum. The fleshy, round and delicious medium weight flavors possess a seductive mouth feel and fine mid-palate density."
