Expert Reviews

Reduction and sulfur make the nose impossible to fairly judge though the round, supple and forward flavors display no sulfur-induced dryness as there is good intensity and vibrancy that carries over to the delicious, long and sappy finish. This should clean up with a bit of pre-bottling aeration. 2012 + Rating 87-89 - Burghound.com (JUL/2009)

Fresh, mineral citrus fruits. Medium-bodied with a light to medium concentration of fine citrus fruits and a light sheen of new oak. Fresh and lithe with decent balance and medium lenght. TheFineWineTimes.com (11/FEB/2010)

Rounded, slightly nutty nose. The palate is fresh and fruity with good acidity and some mineral notes. Rating 87 - Jamie Goode's Wineanorak (APR/2010)

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The family-run company of Maison Louis Latour is one of the most highly-respected négociant-éléveurs in Burgundy. Renowned throughout the world for the quality of its red and white wines, the company has built a reputation for tradition and innovation.

Regarded as one of the traditional négociant-éléveurs, Maison Louis Latour is the producer of some of the finest Burgundian wines but has also pioneered the production of fine wines from outside of the confines of Burgundy.

These wines from the Ardèche and the Côteaux de Verdon are slowly gaining esteem for their unmatchable quality outside of Burgundy.

Maison Louis Latour respects Burgundian traditions for the vinification of its red wines from the harvest to the final product. Only the finest grapes are selected and placed into traditional French oak vats for a short period of fermentation.

Maison Louis Latour is the oldest remaining, family-run winegrower/merchant in Burgundy. It has achieved this enviable position by a readiness to change with the times and by staying at the forefront of innovation in winemaking and marketing.

In 1999, the sixth Louis Latour, passed the running of the business into the hands of his son, Louis-Fabrice. Since joining in 1989, Louis-Fabrice has introduced new management skills and ideas. He is a strong advocate of the family philosophy of integrating modern innovations with the best of established traditions. According to Louis-Fabrice, it is an unwritten rule in the family that each generation should leave something new for future generations. His unwavering commitment to quality will continue Maison Louis Latour’s already well-established reputation.
