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

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