Savigny-lès-Beaune, Louis Latour

SAVI155
Lying just beneath the hill of Beaune, the vine-growing areas of Savigny-lès-Beaune fall into two areas. The first is in the south adjacent to Beaune and the other is in the north bordering on the appellation of Aloxe-Corton. The red wines of Savigny are very like those of Beaune.

Louis Latour

The Latour family have long been established in the Burgundy wine trade, having begun as winegrowers back in 1768 in the village of Aloxe-Corton. They create wines from their own 50 hectare domaine, as well as from the grapes which they purchase through the negociant arm of the business. Their wines have lots of character, intense aromatics and benefit from a long finish.

Tasting Notes

Deep ruby red in appearance, the Savigny-lès-Beaune has an intense nose full of wild strawberry, cherry, coffee and spices aromas. Powerful flavours on the palate of liquorice and cassis.

Food Matches

A superb accompaniment to rich poultry, casseroles, light game dishes and hard cheese.
