LOUIS LATOUR, IN THE HEART OF ALOXE-CORTON

Louis Latour, an exceptional winery…

The independent family-owned winery Louis Latour was founded in 1797 and is now managed by Louis-Fabrice Latour, representing the seventh generation. Still in its original birthplace, the hill of Corton, it has preserved its exceptional heritage for over 200 years thanks to the visionary and ambitious spirit of the winemakers. The Latour family, growers in the Côte de Beaune since at least 1731, arrived in Aloxe in 1768, acquiring several vineyards on and around the hill of Corton. The first exports date from 1815 and its international sales increased starting from 1860. In the mid-19th century, the wines were even served to prestigious tables of the Court of Bavaria, the King of Württemberg and the Prince Radziwill. Production expanded with the purchase of plots over the years, such as the Grand Cru Côte de Nuits in 1900, the Chevalier-Montrachet “Les Demoiselles” in 1913 or the Clos Chameroy in the late 70’s.

In the vineyard…

Louis Latour cultivates 48 hectares of vines including 27 Grands Crus sites. It represents the largest area of Grands Crus of Burgundy. In the heart of the village of Aloxe-Corton, the winemakers favor traditional viticulture as they grow crops between vineyard rows in order to preserve biodiversity.  This noble land, perfect base for the production of great wines, is treated with vigilance and care. The winery is entirely driven by sustainable and ecofriendly farming.

… And in the wine cellar

Here, the grapes are harvested by hand. Then the Pinot Noir grapes are being sorted on a sorting table to keep only the most promising berries before being partially destemmed. Chardonnay is pressed directly after sorting and crushing. These classic wines are made with very modern techniques. Deeply marked by their terroir, the wines of Louis Latour reflect the traditional style of the house, made of elegance, complexity and finesse.
