It is a family of winegrowers in Aloxe-Corton since the seventeenth century that has patiently built up its vineyard of about fifty hectares, including 29 hectares in Grands Crus - Côtes d'Or. A unique Domaine.

The 29 hectares Grands Crus of Domaine Louis Latour vineyards extend from Côte de Beaune to Côte de Nuits. The House also owns the Château Corton Grancey and cellars dating from 1834 set in the rock of Corton "Pierrières" allowing for optimal maturation and aging.

The House is to this day directed by Louis-Fabrice Latour, a seventh generation.

Description Louis Latour Corton Grand Cru "Clos de la Vigne au Saint" 2016.

The Grand Cru Clos de la Vigne aux Saints located on the Côte de Beaune belongs to the commune of Aloxe-Corton and is planted with the Pinot Noir grape variety on a marl and limestone soil to give a Grand Cru Red.

The average age of the vines is 40 years and the yield is very low: 3500 liters per hectare.

The grapes are harvested entirely by hand and the wines are aged for approximately 10 to 12 months in French oak barrels, 35% of which are new.

On the nose, the aromas are well blended with a light and very pleasant dominant of black cherry and vanilla with a small note of undergrowth. In the mouth, the wine is elegant, supple with a fine woody and peppery finish. Length : superb

Ageing potential : 10-15 years

Serve at 16-17°C and open a few hours before serving.
