RATINGS

94Vinous / IWC

I especially like the energy, focus and nuance of the Latricières, all typical of this cool site. Floral and spice notes add further lift and vibrancy as the wine opens up in the glass.

93-95The Wine Advocate

Bright floral notes lead to dark cherries, savory herbs and licorice in this gorgeous, utterly impeccable Burgundy... boasts tremendous depth and sheer personality. Slate, graphite and wet stones

92-94Burghound.com

There is good intensity and richness however to the cool, vibrant, intense and beautifully well-detailed mineral-driven flavors that are also quite firm but here the tannins are much finer on the materially more persistent finish.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin, Latricieres-Chambertin

Latricieres-Chambertin is an 18.2 acre Grand Cru vineyard in Gevrey-Chambertin. The vineyard is just south of Chambertin, and it is essentially flat. There are 12 property owners within Latricieres-Chambertin, which has been farmed as a vineyard since the 16th century.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
