Domaine de Valmoissine Pinot Noir 2018, Louis Latour. Pinot Noir can be a really difficult grape. It’s why it’s usually so expensive. But leave it to Louis Latour, Burgundy superstars, to find a way to make to a Pinot Noir which is both delicious and every-day affordable. They looked to Var, in Southern France. An unusual choice, perhaps, for this cool-climate-loving grape, but at 500 meters above sea level you’re guaranteed the perfect conditions. It’s made on the site of an abandoned monastery at the same altitude as the Grand Cru red Burgundies which made Latour’s name. Cherry. Raspberry. Blackcurrants. It’s fruity – but with a savoury edge which is pure Pinot. The main problem with inexpensive Pinot Noirs tends to be that they’re too light – but this is silky and fresh. A really delicious glassful, perfect with a charcuterie platter..
