Details

The Refène climat is situated at the heart of the Pommard premiers crus, at the top of the village and next to the Clos de la Commaraine. It extends over 2.4Ha, and Domaine Latour owns 26 ares. The wine produced is typical of Pommard 1er Cru: rich, full-bodied and intense, with amplitude ahead of grace. Its powerful bouquet, its vibrant colour, its somewhat square structure are counterbalanced by earthy and smoky notes, and considerable length.


 

"Deep ruby hue. Here too there is enough wood to mention framing the equally ripe if more elegant aromas of spice, cassis, black cherry and a touch of earth. The sleeker and slightly more precise medium-bodied flavors possess solid intensity and a bit more complexity on the balanced and lingering finish that is mildly firmer as well."
