The Latour family have long been established in Burgundy's wine trade. They began as vine growers in the village of Aloxe-Corton as early as 1768 and went on to establish today's business, Maison Louis Latour, in 1797. Today they are one of the region's most famous names creating wines from their own 50 hectare domaine in the Côte d'Or and from grapes and wines purchased through the négociant arm of the business.
Deep ruby red in appearance, the Savigny-lès-Beaune has an intense nose full of wild strawberry, cherry, coffee and spices aromas.
Powerful flavours on the palate of liquorice and cassis.
A superb accompaniment to rich poultry, casseroles, light game dishes and hard cheese.
Fermentation is carried out in the traditional manner using open vats. The wine is aged for
10 to 12 months in oak barrels, 10% new.
