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

No. No. No. Tart and acidic is okay for me, old world style on Pinot Noir I can also appreciate. We sensed what they were going for here, but we both thought the wine just tasted lazy and watered down. The bottle wasn't bad, but the wine was...(we had 2 and they both were the same)

pale lemon color; lemon citrus, mineral, green apple, slight floral and mint notes; medium bodied, fresh and powerful with solid acidity and a long finish

Accurate for a burgundian Pino Noir. Very weak compared to the bold US grapes. This old world-style, delicately flavored bottle was fruity, acidic with a raspberry spice finish. Gentle and appropriate for white meat; a decent choice for every day delicate red.

Semi-clear, dark garnet, showing slight signs of age around the edges. Redcurrant and wild cherry seized me by the nose, with a third note soon joining the fray that made me think rhubarb despite my never having tasted it outside of a pie (and with strawberries). Make of that what you will. Dry on the palate, with expanding fruit flavors and a long finish of raspberry and woody spice. Light-mid-bodied, easy to drink and generally well-balanced. Good, but I guess I'm just not a fan of the style.

Tried two bottles; both were very thin as well as tart and acidic. Barely recognizable as Pinot Noir, which I love and drink regularly.

Deep garnet. Pronounced spicy floral notes can be found on the nose and on tasting we have a wine which is...

Lovely ruby in color, Marsannay 2007 clearly expresses red fruit aromas. The nose is also infused with menthol, which contributes great freshness. In the mouth, this wine is complex, with lots of substance and good persistence. Pleasant to taste now, while possessing great structure for cellaring. Tasted July 8th, 2009.
