Louis Latour Marsannay 2007

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/31541 for £10.50 for two bottles.Marsannay comes from the area around the villages of Marsannay-la-Cote,Chenove and Couchey,only just south of the town of Dijon on the Cotes de Nuits in the Burgundy region.Louis Latour [www.louislatour.com ]is a well known and respected firm of negociants founded in 1797 in Beaune and is still in the same family today.I started my bottle last night with my steak supper and I liked it.There is plenty of fruit [think cherries or rapberries] there and it is very smooth and elegant but I thought it just a little bland compared to other Burgundies I have had.However it was a good accompaniment to my steak at a value for money price

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 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
