Louis Latour Marsannay 2014

Louis Latour Marsannay 2014

Sku: 006768

Marsannay is the village which marks the northern gateway to the Cote 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 Cote d’Or. Wines from Marsannay are generally lively and robust; characteristics that come from the rich iron soil. Marsannay received its Appellation Controlee as recently as 1987 in recognition of the consistently high quality of its wine.

Ripe and lush raspberry flavor with notes of flower blossoms and clove.

This Pinot Noir is unparalleled in quality.  Louis Latour Marsannay from Burgundy is simply the best French Pinot Noir available under $25. Lively and robust, this wine comes from the celebrated Côtes de Nuits region and shows the wonderful characteristics of this small village's reputation.

Food pairing
The best part of this Marsannay is that it is perfect for the hot and cold days of spring. Cured meat and bold cheeses are a perfect pairing for this Pinot Noir. Burgundies are also the classic companion to grilled meats if you are lucky enough to have a grill. My favorite dish with the Louis Latour is by far a simply prepared duck breast.

On the underside of the breasts, rub into the meat the salt, pepper, herbs and orange zest and let them sit in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to 5 hours. When you are ready to begin cooking, take them out of the fridge to allow them to warm up slightly before cooking... Read more
