The Beaune 1er Cru "Vignes Franches" has an elegant, seductive garnet colour. On the nose, it reveals aromas of undergrowth, liquorice and mint. In the mouth, notes of cherry appear. It is a fresh and powerful wine
Historically the owners of this area did not have to pay tax on the land, hence the name ‘Vignes Franches' (‘free vines'). The Beaune Premier Cru "Vignes Franches" parcel, important part of Domaine Louis Latour, is found mid-slope. The clay soils are scattered with small pebbles which allows for easy drainage of water. Here we find the same opulence as in neighbouring Pommard as well as an extremely pleasant fruit-forwardness even when young. It is one of the best Premier Cru vineyards of Beaune, producing a wine that is capable of ageing to perfection for a considerable period of time.
