Overview of the Wine

Maison Louis Latour is one of the most highly-respected négociant-éléveurs in Burgundy. 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.

All of the grapes from the vineyards owned by the Latour family are vinified and aged in the attractive cuverie of Chateau Corton Grancey in Aloxe-Corton. The winery was the first purpose-built cuverie in France and remains the oldest still-functioning. A unique railway system with elevators allows the entire wine-making process to be achieved by the use of gravity. This eliminates the threat of oxidation from unnecessary pumping of the must. Since 1985, Louis Latour has been selling the wines of its own vineyards under the name Domaine Louis Latour.

Louis Latour has been a leader in the environmentally responsible winemaking for over 15 years. Louis Latour has had ISO 14001 accreditation for Environmental Management Systems since 2003 and has been a member of the European association FARRE since 1998- a group of like-minded companies who seek to develop and promote sustainable methods of agriculture.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes

This "Chaillots" 2015 is of a beautiful intense ruby red color and has a heady perfume of wild strawberry and toasted bread. The mouth is ample with notes of liquorice and chlorophyll. A wine with mellow tannins and beautiful length.
Pairs beautifully with game birds, poultry, and mature cheeses.

92 Points - James Suckling
Aromas of blackberries, leaves and spices. Some meat. Medium body, firm and silky tannins and a savory finish. A little tight and shy. Better in 2021.

92 Points - Wine Spectator
This is lively and smooth, evoking cherry, currant and earth flavors, underlined by burly tannins. Closes down on the finish, with the fruit coming back in the aftertaste. Best from 2022 through 2038. 

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast
The wine is dense with fine concentration and a solid dry tannin character at the back. It is full of black fruits and balanced acidity. Its richness reflects the quality of the vintage and its aging potential. Drink from 2022.
