Pinot Noir "Les Pierres Dorees" 2016
Maison Louis Latour once again exports its Burgundian know-how outside of the Côte d'Or. After the great successes of Ardèche and Var, we have decided to repeat the experience since 2010 by planting Pinot Noir in Southern Burgundy,in the heart of Beaujolais. This project extends over more than 20 hectares today. The calcareous soil rich in iron oxide which creats a rich earthy color, as well as altitude, contribute to produce this surprising wine which associates richness and freshness with a beautiful aromatic complexity.
This region offers beautiful argilo-calcareous soils, the plots selected by Maison Louis Latour form two islands and are situated on the villages of Morancé and Theizé. With a continental moderate climate, vineyards benefit from an ideal period of sunshine but the temperatures are relatively fresh between 280 and 400 meters in altitude.
