  • 2019 Louis Latour Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru "Les Chaillots"
    Cote de Beaune
    Expand
    Aloxe-Corton is the home village of the Latour family, who have been closely involved in the affairs of the commune for over three centuries. Domaine Louis Latour controls over 90% of the total hectarage of this Premier Cru, centered on the famous Château and cuverie of Corton-Grancey. These vines are an important part of the Domaine Louis Latour. The name "Les Chaillots" refers to the stony, pebbly nature of the soil in this vineyard, as "caillou" means pebble in French. There is an alliance in the wines of Aloxe-Corton between the finesse of a Côte de Beaune and the mellow, powerful appeal of the Côte de Nuits. - 94pts Wine Enthusiast - 93pts James Suckling - 92pts Wine Spectator

  • 2019 Louis Latour Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières
    Côte de Beaune
    Expand
    Situated just south of Volnay and Pommard in the Côte de Beaune, Meursault is the most extensive southerly white wine commune of the Côte-d'Or. The perfect south-easterly exposure and the rocky and stony soils contribute greatly to the remarkable finesse of which the wines of Meursault are capable.'Genevrières' comes from 'genévrier' (juniper), a shrub with prickly needles and purple berries which enjoys the limestone soils of Burgundy. Many junipers were replaced by vines, hence the name of the juniper forms part of the name of many parcels of vines. The Meursault 1er Cru "Genevrières" is a great example of a fine Burgundy Chardonnay. - 94pts James Suckling - 91pts Burghound.com

  • 2020 Louis Latour Beaune 1er Cru "Vignes Franches"
    Côte de Beaune
    Expand
    Historically the owners of this area did not have to pay tax on the land, hence the name 'Vignes Franches' ('free vines'). The Beaune Premier Cru "Vignes Franches" parcel, important part of Domaine Louis Latour, is found mid-slope. The clay soils are scattered with small pebbles which allows for easy drainage of water. Here we find the same opulence as in neighbouring Pommard as well as an extremely pleasant fruit-forwardness even when young. It is one of the best Premier Cru vineyards of Beaune, producing a wine that is capable of ageing to perfection for a considerable period of time. - 97pts James Suckling - 92pts Wine Spectator

  • 2019 Louis Latour Château Corton Grancey Grand Cru
    Cote de Beaune
    Expand
    "Grancey" was the name of the last owners of the chateau situated on the road of Corton before the Latour family bought it in 1891. This wine, produced by Maison Louis Latour, is unique and exclusive. It is a blend of five areas of Domaine Latour Corton Grand Cru: Bressandes, Perrières, Grèves, Clos du Roi, and Chaumes, the proportions of which vary depending on the vintage. The average age of the vines is over 40 years. After aging individually, only the best barrels are assembled to create the Château Corton Grancey. It is a wine that is produced only if the grapes are of perfect maturity; vintages judged inferior are systematically declassified. - 98pts Wine Enthusiast - 96pts Wine Review Online - 95pts James Suckling - 94pts Wine Spectator

  • 2016 Louis Latour Volnay 1er Cru "En Chevret"
    Cote de Beaune
    Expand
    This wine originates in the village of Volnay, south of Beaune and neighbor to Pommard. The "En Chevret" parcel of vines is located below the main road, just under the "Caillerets" parcel at the border of the village of Meursault. The easterly exposition and the specific terroir of this single vineyard give us an elegant wine at each vintage. - 92pts James Suckling

  • 2019 Corton Grand Cru "Clos de la Vigne au Saint"
    Cote de Beaune
    Expand
    Clos de la Vigne au Saint is a very old vineyard; the earliest known record of its existence is in 1375, when it is mentioned in the records of the Chapter of Saulieu. The Latour family have a long connection with this vineyard which began in 1738 when Louis Latour's great great grandmother owned a section of the vineyard. Since then, it has remained in family hands, passing from generation to generation. The vineyard has perfect southerly exposure on the Corton hill, lying on a bedrock outcrop towards the bottom of the slope. The soil is a rusty red colour and rich in marl which gives the wines distinct aromas. This wine possesses the elegance that we expect from a Côte d'Or Grand Cru and will age particularly well. - 97pts James Suckling - 94pts Wine Enthusiast - 93pts Wine Spectator
