Question: What is this new wine of pinot noir grapes from Beaujolais?

Answer: Yes Maison Louis Latour founded in 1797 continues to search for new wine regions close by their home of Cote d’Or in Burgundy. They have been producing Chardonnay in the Ardeche region since the 1970s. They debuted their Duet in 2003 with 2/3 Chardonnay & 1/3 Viognier. In the 1980s they planted Pinot Noir in the Haut-Var as Domaine de Valmoissine. Now starting with the first 2015 vintage (current release is 2018) they have a fresh “strawberry” Pinot Noir “Les Pierres Dorees” from the South Beaujolais planted at higher elevations (280-400 meters) on clay & limestone soil under the appellation of Coteaux Bourguignons.
