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 Read more »

  • No weird grape varieties tonight, we did that on Wednesday with one bottle of ... $12.50!Tonight was '07 Louis Latour Corton Grand Cru, a pretty tart Burgundy that was described elsewhere as a Grand Cru Burg priced like a Villages that drinks like a Premier Cru.  I'd say PC-, but perfectly serviceable with our fried chicken.  Lesson learned: O...

  • After much agony and discernment, I have chosen the official wine for my Super Bowl party this year. Over the 9 years I've hosted this event, it is probably the least exotic selection, not to mention least expensive.  Given the fact chili is the main dish (oh please, don't turn your nose. After all, we're American pigskin fans, not Bolsheviks), ... Read More

  • Bourgogne Louis Latour 2012


    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


    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

The third wine was a Louis Latour Grand Ardeche Chardonnay from south-central France that was tasty but we didn't buy one.  This was an oaked Chardonnay and there was an essence of apple / pear on the tongue.  Moving to the reds, we next tasted the Sanford Flo...
