"Nuits-Saint-Georges is the most southerly located village of the Côte de Nuits, to which the city gave its name and which constitutes the other half of the Côte d'Or. The commune produces almost exclusively red wines however there is a limited production of whites. The Nuits-Saint-Georges red wines are robust and elegant, they require some years of aging to reflect the finest expressions of the Pinot Noir. The name of Nuits-Saint-Georges is known worldwide, Apollo XV carried this wine into space and even gave its name to a lunar crater.
An intense, deeply coloured wine, showing pronounced, complex fruit of cherries, blackcurrants and violets, with truffles and spices. Subtle and integrated oak flavours on the palate with peppery notes, this wine is medium bodied, concentrated and admirably long on the finish.
Try with red meat, roasted leg of mutton and mature cheeses."
Maison Louis Latour
"Very pretty red with spice, dried meat and dark fruit. Medium body and light tannins that are precise and focused. Shows tension. Just before bottling. Drink from 2020."
