ABOUT THE WINE
In 1902 the estate of Louis Latour was divided between his two children, Louis Latour (later to form the core of Maison Louis Latour) and Marie Poisot. Three generations on, in 2010, Remi Poisot took over the two hectares that remained after a series of complicated inheritances and sales. These parcels, almost entirely old vines on Grand Cru sites, provide the excellent raw materials which make this tiny domaine so special – Corton-Charlemagne, Corton-Bressandes, Romanée-Saint-Vivant and some Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru.

TASTING NOTES
Delicately insistent aromas of summer-berry fruit, violets and a hint of spice from a small proportion of new oak. The palate is clean and silky, with beautiful structure and subtle, pervasive complexity of overlapping red and black fruit, spice and a developing hint of forest floor – plenty of ageing potential, this should start to open up from 2020. An excellent expression of this legendary vineyard.

FOOD PAIRING
Perfect for duck, or game birds; this also has enough weight to pair well with pork or hearty vegetarian dishes.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
Romanée-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru lies at the foot of Romanée Conti, on clay-over-limestone soils, with perfect exposure to the rising sun. The Poisot parcel has an average vine-age of 35 years.
