Although equipped with the most modern tools and equipment, the winemaking methods at Domaine Louis Latour remain simple and traditional. The Louis Latour style is an auspicious combination of the richness of nature and the skill of man's labour. They respect the natural rhythm of the vines and make wines in harmony with nature, with the aim of offering full expression to the elegance and the balance of the great terroirs of Burgundy.
At Maison Louis Latour, we imprint each wine with an individual style that our customers can rediscover year after year.
Domaine de Valmoissine is located on the site of the ancient monastery and university of Valmoissine at 500 metres above sea-level. This guarantees sunshine during the summer months whilst remaining cool at night and limits the possibility of spring frosts. The vineyard's southern exposure gives the raisins perfect maturity at the same time as the Grands Crus of Corton. The yield is small in order to ensure perfect maturity and concentration of the grapes, the factors that create the best quality wines. This results in an elegant wine with remarkable finesse.
The Pinot Noir Domaine de Valmoissine is a fruity wine, offering a soft and silky palate with soft tannins. It matches well with grilled red meat, cheese and red fruits.
We like this because we love the accessible fruitiness of this Pinot Noir (far less austere than many French PNs) that makes it perfect for many different dishes.
