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.

Louis Latour on Snooth

  • Bourgogne Louis Latour 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Not the best Burgundy I've had. A bit of slightly metallic harshness, not much fruit and medium acidity. Fairly simple once you get past the bite and a fairly short finish. I understand that this is an entry level Bourgogne but Latour is usually pretty reliable, may have opened this too early. Read More

  • Louis Latour Chard Viognier Duet 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Not bad but not great blend of chardonnay and viognier. Feels a bit heavy on the viognier with some ripe pear, butterscotch and muted lemon on the palate. Read More
