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).
About the cuvée
This Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet, élevaged for 8 to 10 months in new oak barrels (French oak from the Louis Latour cooperage) comes from Chardonnay vines with an average age of 40 years. It reveals aromas of mirabelle plum, white flowers and a touch of vanilla. This grand cru is impressively concentrated and powerful in the mouth. It will take at least seven years before the wood is properly integrated into the wine.
