Expert Reviews

Fresh sappy, cherryish nose leads to a supple cherry fruit palate. Light, juicy and vibrant but quite grippy. Rating 84 - Jamie Goode's Wineanorak (APR/2010)

A fresh and quite floral nose of earthy and mildly rustic red berry fruit aromas that leads to round, supple and nicely detailed flavors that possess both good intensity and persistence though the finish is a bit dry. 2011+ Rating 85-87- Burghound.com (APR/2010)

Marsannay A.O.C.

Marsannay is the village which marks the northern gateway to the Côte d’Or on leaving Dijon, the capital of Burgundy and home to the Ducs de Bourgogne. This village marks the beginning of the Route des Grands Crus which follows the N6 highway through the Côte d’Or. The wines are renowned for being sturdy and robust due to the rich iron-based soil, they have an intense bouquet of red fruit and a mouth-filling, silky palate with a distinct gamey character and great tannic appeal.. Marsannay received its Appellation Contrôlée as recently as 1987 in recognition of the consistently high quality of its wine.

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.
