France - Provincial
Louis Latour Domaine de Valmoissine Pinot Noir, Vin de Pays des Côteaux du Verdon, Louis Latour
Louis Latour Domaine de Valmoissine
is located on the site of the ancient monastery and university of Valmoissine (at 500 metres above sea-level) in the Côteaux de Verdon
, which is a visually stunning and historically rich region of France only 70 miles north of the holiday hot-spot of Saint Tropez. The vineyards are situated up in the mountains, not far from the magnificent gorges that the region is famous for. These unique growing conditions mean that the grapes benefit from a slightly warmer climate but are also enriched by the longer, cooler night-time hours. It is these cooler nighttime hours that give the wine its ultimate finesse. The grapes are entirely hand-picked before being fermented in stainless steel open-vats for a short period of 4-5 days. Pigeage will take place 2-3 times a day to extract colour and tannins.
Louis Latour Domaine de Valmoissine Pinot Noir is a gleaming ruby coloured with garnet tints and has a bouquet redolent of raspberry, blackberry and game. In the mouth it is round with supple tannins and subtle dried flower notes.
