Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru
Côte de Nuits
AOC Grand cru
Latricières-Chambertin is a satellite of Chambertin, located at the edge of the Morey-Saint-Denis appellation, between the famous Mont Luisant mountain and Chambertin. The soil here is composed of calcareous clay overlying marl atop thick limestone beds. The soil is lean and a thin layer of silica scree from the Grissard valley can be seen at the surface. "Tricière" means "poor soil", but despite this, the soil’s characteristics yield wines redolent of notes of wild fruit and subtle complex spices.
The nose is both delicate and intense, with fruity aromas of blackcurrant and raspberry with a floral touch of rose. The palate’s structure is imposing yet supple and silky. Perfect balance and a stunning finish.
A perfect match for red meats, game, and ripe or strong aged cheeses.
