Day 1 – Louis Latour, Burgundy
Maison Louis Latour
Founded in 1797, Maison Louis Latour has more than two centuries of Burgundian history. Authentic to its roots, the house has remained family owned and is currently managed by the 11th generation of the Latour family.
Each generation remains as passionate as the last, to preserve the unique heritage, spirit and vision of Louis Latour. The estate encompasses just over 50 hectares of Burgundy’s finest vineyards, producing more than one million bottles of wines a year. An exceptional collection of appellations allow Louis Latour to produce formidable quality and consistency in their wines. In total, 130 different wines are vinified each year. The house aims to create two distinct expressions for their respective white and red wines.
Louis Latour whites wines, like Chablis and Mersault, aim to be structured, rich and well balanced. The red wines, like Nuits St Georges and Gervey Chambertin, are to be delicate, elegant and distinguished.
