Vinification:

Maison Louis Latour has always been careful to select those wines vinified in a traditional manner.

Fermentation takes place in traditional in open vats.

Ageing takes 10 to 12 months in French oak barrels, of which 25% of these are new and have been

toasted (medium) made at Louis Latours own cooperage.   

Cellaring Potential 7  - 10 years




Winery information:

Historically the owners of this area did not have to pay tax on the land, hence the name ‘Vignes Franches' (‘free vines'). The Beaune Premier Cru "Vignes Franches" parcel, important part of Domaine Louis Latour, is found mid-slope. The clay soils are scattered with small pebbles which allows for easy drainage of water. Here we find the same opulence as in neighbouring Pommard as well as an extremely pleasant fruit-forwardness even when young. It is one of the best Premier Cru vineyards of Beaune, producing a wine that is capable of ageing to perfection for a considerable period of time.

The soil in the vineyards of Beaune is of clay and limestone.

The average age of the vines are 35 years with an average yield of 40 hl/ha.

Harvested by hand.



Tasting Note:

With attractive garnet red highlights this wine offers up a complex nose of raspberry, wild strawberry, liquorice and pepper. Rounded in the mouth with a long finish. Noticeable tannins but mellow.

Food Recommendation:

Serving temperature 15 - 17°

Beef Bourguignon - duck breast  - Camembert - soft cheeses.
