Maison Latour is still independent and run by the founding family and is now in its 11th generation. Gevrey-Chambertin sits at the bottom of the hill of the Grand Cru Chambertin. This is one of the finest viticultural villages of all of the Côtes de Nuits. The sparse and pebbly limestone-rich brown and red soils give Gevrey-Chambertin wines power and body. The wine is produced from vines averaging 30 years in age and are aged 12 months in French oak of which 20% are new. This is a big style of pinot noir with spicy cherry and pure raspberry. It is opulent and dense, delivering vanilla cherry across the mid palate. This wine is very sleek and energetic with terrific intensity and balance, and has a silky finish presenting a long aftertaste. Everything is in the right place for this classic burgundy.
