Louis Latour

Maison Louis Latour was founded in 1797. The Latour family themselves have been wine-growers since the 17th century, slowly building up a unique Domaine of 50 hectares (125 acres). Latour has 33 hectares of vineyards in Aloxe-Corton, where Château Corton Grancey is based. The winery Corton Grancey was built in 1834 and was the first purpose-built winery in France. Its five levels mean that cuvage can be carried out by gravity. Its cellars, embedded in the rock of Corton “Perrières” provide ageing conditions.
The majority of Louis Latour’s Domaine vineyards are in Aloxe-Corton, the original home of the family. Here Latour owns 10.5 hectares (25 acres) of Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, one of the most famous white wines of Burgundy. They also own parts of Corton Clos de la Vigne au Saint Grand Cru, Corton Bressandes Grand Cru, Corton Les Chaumes Grand Cru, Corton Les Pougets Grand Cru, Corton Les Perrières Grand Cru, Corton Clos du Roi Grand Cru, Corton Les Grèves Grand Cru. They also own parts of the Premiers Crus “Les Chaillots”, “Les Founières” and “Les Guérets”. Furthermore, Latour owns parts of the vineyards of Chambertin, Romanée-Saint-Vivant and Chevalier-Montrachet “Les Demoiselles”.
