Maison Louis Latour, Volnay 1er Cru (Burgundy, France) En Chevret 2019

($100, Louis Latour, USA):  Louis Latour, one of Burgundy’s leading négociants, hit a home run with their 2019 reds.  From the array I’ve tasted, you could almost pick with your eyes closed and get a terrific wine.  This Volnay 1er is especially attractive because of its seductive perfume, silky texture, and refinement.  It displays good depth and concentration without a trace of heaviness.  Its energy and an attractive hint of bitterness in the finish is a reminder that Latour avoided the potential over ripe pitfall of the vintage.
