  • Our Côte de Nuits-Villages encompasses the villages of Premeaux-Prissey, Comblanchien, and Corgoloin just south of Nuits-Saint-Georges. The vineyards benefit from east-facing hill-slopes which act as a sun-trap to create maximum ripeness in the grapes. The complex soil composition of these villages include varying proportions of marl and shale clays which produce wines of great character and charm. Maison Louis Latour's Côte de Nuits-Villages is an excellent introduction to the wines of the Côte de Nuits.

      A discreet touch of wood sets off liqueur-like aromas of plum, earth and the sauvage. The attractively textured and caressing flavors retain reasonable verve on the supple, lightly rustic and lingering finish ...

    • Côte de Nuits-Villages 2014 - Wine Enthusiast - October 2016 - 87/100

      From vineyards at the south end of the Côte de Nuits, this is a fruity, crisp wine with attractive ready-to-drink fruit flavors. The aftertaste is tight and packed with acidity.
