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 nice wine that is full bodied, yet crisp, with slight hints of pineapple and then crisp apples, nice fruit, mineral, and balance. Very good value. Also try the "Grand Ardeche" for a few dollars more.

Unpretentious, crisp, floral, caramel, and a nice mineral aftertaste.

Das einmalige Terroir des CHTEAU DE PERROY schafft die Basis und ist auch gleichzeitig der Garant für einen ausgewogenen, facettenreichen Waadtländer Rotwein der oberen Qualitätsstufe. Die intensiven, reintönigen, reifen Fruchtaromen (Himbeeren, Erdbeeren) und die dezenten Gewürznoten in der Nase erfüllen schon im Bouquet die hohen Erwartungen in diesen Grand Cru. Aber auch im Gaumen und im Finale weiss dieser Pinot von CHTEAU DE PERROY durch seine zugängliche Textur und durch seine fruchtige Struktur zu überzeugen.

Im Bouquet offenbaren sich intensive Fruchtaromen, die durch eine feine Honignote akzentuiert werden. Auf dem tonhaltigen Boden des CHÂTEAU DE PERROY entsteht ein gradliniger, fruchtiger und harmonischer Weisswein, der die Rebsorte und das Terroir perfekt zum Ausdruck bringt. Das ausgewogene Zusammenspiel eines gehaltvollen Körpers und einer nachhaltigen Struktur prägt den Sinneseindruck. Dieser Waadtländer Weisswein von CHÂTEAU DE PERROY zeigt im lange anhaltenden Finale Profil und Charakter!

Dunkel-rubinrote Farbe, mit vollem Körper, kraftvoll und herzhaft. Ein Rotwein, der sich im Laufe der Jahre zu einem reichhaltigen und robusten Wein mit Tiefe entfaltet.

From Louis Latour, one of the masters of white Burgundy, comes this lovely, apple-scented everyday French Chardonnay. Medium-bodied, fresh and juicy. A great value.

Secco Perlé de Palait 2006 - Lergenmüller : Secco Perlé de Palait 2006 - Schaumwein von LergenmüllerDer Secco Perlé de Palait 2006 präsentiert eine sehr klare Nase mit einer feinen Frucht. Im Mund spürt man die feine Perlage, etwas Süße und Noten von gelben Früchten mit einem langen Nachhall. Insgesamt ist dieser Sekt sehr elegant, kraftvoll und erfrischend. Die lebendige, gut eingebundene Säure und die klar definierte Struktur machen ihn zu einem Trinkgenuss.
