|Red Chassagne Montrachet Louis Latour
Chassagne-Montrachet and its neighbor Puligny are renowned for their Grands Crus, the most famous being the Montrachet. But in the shadow of these white Grands Crus, Chassagne-Montrachet also produces remarkable reds on its clay soil with ferric inclusions. These wines have body and their structure is reminiscent of the reds of the Côte de Nuits.

Our 2014 Chassagne-Montrachet Rouge reveals a very pretty ruby color. Complex aromas mix and give an aromatic and spicy nose: liquorice, vanilla, undergrowth and black fruits. The mouth is round and fresh, the tannins are supple, enhanced by notes of blackcurrant and cherry.
