Our Côte de Nuits-Villages encompasses the villages of Premeaux-Prissey, Comblanchien and Corgoloin just south of Nuits-Saint-Georges. The vineyards benefit from east-facing hill-slopes which act as a sun-trap to create maximum ripeness in the grapes. The complex soil composition of these villages includes varying proportions of marl and shale clays which produce wines of great character and charm. Maison Louis Latour’s Côte de Nuits Villages is an excellent introduction to the wines of the Côte de Nuits.

Tasting Note: The Côte de Nuits Villages 2015 unveils itself as an intense colour of glinting ruby. It reveals undergrowth aromas and offers a fragrance of strawberry. In the mouth, it is an ample and lively wine with silky tannins and a smoky finish.
