The Latours have been vintners in Burgundy since the 17th century, slowly building a unique Domaine of 125 acres. Maison Louis Latour currently has the largest Grand Cru property in all of the Cote d’Or with a total of 71.58 acres. The vineyards extend from Chambertin in the north to Chevalier-Montrachet in the south and are solely planted with the two noble grape varieties: Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. All of the grapes from the vineyards we own are vinified and aged in the attractive cuverie of Château Corton Grancey in Aloxe-Corton. The winery was the first purpose-built cuverie in France and remains the oldest still-functioning. A unique rail-way system with elevators allows the entire wine-making process to be achieved by the use of gravity. This eliminates the threat of oxidation from unnecessary pumping of the must. Since 1985, Louis Latour has been selling the wines from its own vineyards under the name Domaine Louis Latour. The Latour family founded the ‘Maison de négoce’, an important shipping company, in 1797, and it is still based at 18 Rue des Tonneliers in Beaune to this day. The company is unique in Burgundy in that it is still family-owned and family-run, having been passed down from father to son for over ten generations. To celebrate our Bicentenary in 1797, we published a commemorative book and were admitted into the exclusive club of the Hénokiens. This club only accepts companies that are leaders in their respective fields, remain family owned, have a history of 200 years’ experience and still bear the name of their founder. There are only approximately 30 of these companies in the world. Maison Louis Latour ships its wines to over 60 countries worldwide. These world-class Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs can be found on the most famous dining tables around the globe. Read less

A bit reticent with it’s slightly gamy toned warm dark fruit. This grows to reveal earth, mineral and minty, floral tones that frame the jammy bitter cherry fruit. A bit relaxed across the palate this has lovely bitter cherry/berry fruit in a medium full bodied package that is simple but supported by some nice, slightly chalky tannins. The finish has real mineral cut to the cherry fruit. Overall this feels a touch tight at this stage and should benefit from a year or two in bottle. 87pts

Wow! I was so disappointed in this wine, knowing that it had received a nice review in Wine Spectator. I opened it and was shocked to taste the "concord" grape taste of the wine. Sadly underdeveloped. I don't forsee much aging potential for balance or finesse. Would not work well with any of the typical burgundian food pairings.

The wine has a nice garnet robe and expresses the nature of Pinot. An intense bouquet of red and black fruit is brought forth revealing a silky texture on the palate. It is robust with a good balance between tannins and acidity. Good length ending up with mineral notes
