Maison Louis Latour, Mercurey (Burgundy, France) 2015

($26, Louis Latour USA):  Here’s another example of a well-priced Burgundy from the exceptional 2015 vintage.  Mercurey, a village in the Côte Chalonnaise, is home to fine Pinot Noir-based Burgundy.  Latour’s delivers bright cherry-like fruitiness buttressed by a firm mineral edge characteristic of the wines from Mercurey.  An appealing hint of cherry pit bitterness in the finish adds to its allure.  This is an easy to recommend wine for current drinking. 90 Michael Apstein Nov 14, 2017
