Maison Louis Latour, Marsannay (Burgundy, France) 2020

($45, Louis Latour, USA):  Burgundy lovers have discovered the charms of Marsannay, the northernmost village of the Côtes de Nuits.  Prices have risen as a result and are poised to continue their climb because the village is in the process of having some vineyards certified as 1er Cru.  So, now is the time to act by buying the luscious 2020s.  And Latour’s is a good place to start.  Bright red cherry-like notes complement herbal ones. Suave tannins make it easy to enjoy now.  It displays real Côtes de Nuits character at a Côtes de Beaune price.
