Domain: Louis Latour
Our allocation this week focuses on old vintages of the great wines of Maison Louis Latour. The greatest terroirs of the Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune are available in the sale, in ready-to-drink vintages. This house, which is one of the most well-known in Burgundy, excels in both its red and white wine production. These are great classics, essential to any wine enthusiast’s collection.
A family business since its creation in 1797, Louis Latour is one of the most recognised traders/ famers in Burgundy. It has remained a family enterprise for over two centuries and is thus part of the closed circle of the Henokiens. It is now Louis-Fabrice Latour, representative of the 11th generation who is at its head. The Louis Latour house gradually formed a vast domaine, extending from Chambertin to Chevalier-Montrachet: 48 hectares, 28 in grand crus. It cultivates Pinot Noir for its reds and Chardonnay for its whites. Over the last thirty years, the company has also spread in the Ardèche, in the Var and in the Pierres Dorées region, also producing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The Maison is committed to a more ecologically friendly and respectful terroir by adopting responsible and sustainable agriculture (limitation of pesticides, compost and ploughing of certain parcels).
