Louis Latour

The Latour family have long been established in the Burgundy wine trade, having begun as winegrowers back in 1768 in the village of Aloxe-Corton. They create wines from their own 50 hectare domaine, as well as from the grapes which they purchase through the negociant arm of the business. Their wines have lots of character, intense aromatics and benefit from a long finish.

Tasting Notes

This wine is pale yellow in colour. 2013 reveals a lovely nose of exotic fruits, with hints of muscat. Perfectly balanced with lively citrus fruit flavors.
