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

Louis Latour Marsannay (Rouge) (Marsannay-la-Côte) (www.louislatour.com); 13.5 pabv; $16/750 ml--Jerardi's Little Store; Dayton, OH. Imported by Louis Latour, San Francisco, CA. The reverse label states the vintage as 2000, not 1999. The wine is the typically dense cherry color with a pinkish edge. When first opened it wasn't very impressive; I didn't decant it. It seemed a clumsy, confused sweet, warmish wine with plum the most evident scent and flavor, with not much finish.After 24 hours, the nose is a spicy cherry pie with hints of allspice and browned pastry crust. It breathes mint and has good depth. On the palate it echoes the nose; it's Marsannay sturdy but not clumsy, with a little meaty soupiness added to the finish. Tannins are fine and there is good mouth-filling grip. Excellent value and typicity, although I'm confused about the vintage. If there ever was a Burgundy that would make an excellent picnic wine, this is it.[Marsannay is the first main town going south out of Dijon as one enters the Cote-de-Nuits. All wines (rouge, blanc, et rosé) are classified no higher than the Village level, although some might appear with a regional appellation (Côte-de-Nuits Villages). The reds usually have the broad-shouldered, muscular, almost rustic style of the northern end of the Côtes, similar to Fixin.]
