"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.
Of a deep garnet color, the Beaune 1er Cru "Vignes Franches" 2016 reveals a complex nose of toasted hazelnuts, black cherries and liquorice. The liquorice is felt in the mouth with blackcurrant notes. A round and fresh finish with a hint of chlorophyll. Have it with beef "Bourguignon" and soft cheeses."
Maison Louis Latour


"Even today, Beaune is frequently underrated despite being within Burgundy. And this wine shows what nonsense that is. Great aromas of black fruit and concentration with beautifully integrated tannins. A long and complete finish, making this rather exciting. Drink or hold."
