- Le Bourgogne de Louis Latour rouge 2005 - Burghound.com - April 2007 - 84-86/100An expressive nose of raspberry, cassis and earth nuances combines with only slightly rustic barely medium weight flavors that offer better than average complexity and only a touch of structure. This should drink well on the early side and it's agreeably delicious already.
