Tasting Notes:

Our Romanée-Saint-vivant Grand Cru "Les Quatre Journaux" 2016 shows a garnet colour. This wine offers an aromatic bouquet of red fruits (blackberry, raspberry) and subtle hints of pepper and nutmeg. The mouth, long and suave, reveals aromas of chlorophyll, morelly cherry and clove. Beautiful length in the mouth.

The Latour family has been proprietors of a part of Romanée-Saint-Vivant since December 1898. "Les Quatre Journaux" is a magnificent plot of land situated at the South-West of Romanée Saint Vivant, a few meters from the Romanée-Conti vineyard. A "Journal"Cuvée Héritiers Latour" is an old Burgundian measurement corresponding to approximately 0.4 hectares (34,28 ares). Even though the Latours' initial purchase carried the entirety of the plot, half of it was sold some years later. Today Maison Louis Latour owns 0.8 hectares of Romanée-Saint-Vivant. It offers a marvelously aromatic wine, with a velvety texture which culminates in a persistent and powerful finish in the mouth. It is one of our greatest red wines.

The average vine age is 30 years, yielding 30hl/ha in iron-based clay soil. All grapes were hand picked.

Traditional fermentation in open vats.

10 to 12 months ageing in oak barrels, 100% new.
