Louis Latour:
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 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

Extremely attractive aromas of blackberries and currants with just a hint of mineral and oak. Full-bodied with silky tannins and a long long finish. As it was from barrel; powerful and fast. Serious stuff. Best after 2010. -JS Wine Spectator.

Deep red-ruby. Enticing aromas of roasted plum currant graphite and smoky oak. Precise spicy and juicy; more herbal than the 2002 or 2003 but also very intensely flavored and not at all hard. This very long pure Latour seems to be shutting down today. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Deep garnet colored the nose is open and expressive even at this youthful stage giving notes of black berry and black cherry compote potpourri and anise with hints of sandalwood and cloves. The palate is drinking beautifully now (though with loads more to give) offering a high level of ripe velvety tannins enlivening acid and just enough fruit concentration finishing long. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

A brilliant offering...a glorious bouquet of black currants, crushed stones, vanilla, and hints of truffles and oak...reveals a sweetness on the palate that is atypical for such a young Latour. The beautiful integration of tannin, acidity, and wood i... Robert Parker. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2001 Latour, Chateau 3000ml
