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 includes 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.
It reveals a very fresh aroma and offers a fragrance of fruits such as raspberries and blackberries with nuances of chocolate. In the mouth, it is an ample and lively wine with a blackcurrant finish. It has a real length in the mouth.
