Louis Latour Marsannay

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Hailing from the village of Marsannay in Burgundy, France, this highly approachable (not to mention affordable) pinot noir is red-fruited and earthy on the nose, whilst the palate is supple, soft and ripe with gentle tannins and a dry finish. Would be lovely with coq au vin.

Winemaker's Notes

Marsannay is the village which marks the northern gateway to the Côte d'Or on leaving Dijon, the capital of Burgundy and home to the Ducs de Bourgogne. This village marks the beginning of the Route des Grands Crus which follows the N6 highway through the Côte d'Or. Wines from Marsannay are generally lively and robust; characteristics that come from the rich iron soil.
Marsannay received its Appellation Contrôlée as recently as 1987 in recognition of the consistently high quality of its wine. 

Appearance: Ruby red.

Nose: Cherries and liquorice.

Palate: Round and elegant in the mouth with smooth tannins.

Food: Roasted duck - "coq au vin" - lamb stew - mature cheeses.

Cellaring: Three to 5 years.
