2019 Pinot Noir, Domaine de Valmoissine, Louis Latour
I needed a nice pinot noir to go with some roasted duck breast last week but wasn’t looking to break the bank: the problem with nice pinots is that they do tend to come at a very nice price. Then I remembered that we’d recently taken delivery of Louis Latour’s latest vintage of Domaine de Valmoissine. Last year we’d asked ourselves whether or not it had been the ‘bargain of the year’ and now I’m wondering if it might already be an early front runner for this years' title too.
Unlike the majority of Latour’s portfolio, the secret to the Valmoissine’s success is that the fruit used here comes, not from Burgundy, but instead from the beautifully sunny southern French Provençal Var region. Grown on vines situated at 500m above sea level to ensure that the wines have a beautiful freshness to go alongside the wonderfully ripe sun blessed fruit. At just £12.45 a bottle this wine should be everyone’s go to red no matter what the occasion.
- Robin James, Head of Customer Experience, Mr.Wheeler.
Ripe red fruits jump from the glass enticing you to a bright cherry-led palate which is round and silky smooth. A delicious pinot with a southern French lift. Terrific value.
"The vineyards are fairly high here so the heat of the day is tempered by the cool of the night leading to a delightfully accessible, deliciously fresh, raspberry-rich, tannin-light Pinot."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator (previous vintage)
