Louis Latour : Chambertin Grand cru "Cuvée Héritiers Latour" 2016

The complexity and refinement of a Chambertin Grand cru wine

The estate

Founded in 1797, the Maison Louis Latour is today represented by the 11th generation with Lousi-Fabrice Latour at its head. Merchant-winemaker, the Maison Louis Latour is the owner of the largest estate of Grand Crus in Burgundy.

The vineyard

This "Cuvée Héritiers Latour" 2016 from Louis Latour is a Chambertin Grand cru wine developed from a plot of 0.81 hectares on a single piece of land, acquired at the end of the 19th century by the Latour family. The name of the wine refers to the passing down of this exceptional heritage plot to the descendants of the Latour family.

Winemaking and ageing

Once the harvests were done by hand, fermentation was carried out in the traditional Burgundy way – in open vats, with a 100% malolactic fermentation. Ageing was carried out over 10-12 months in French oak casks (100% new), made by the Louis Latour cooperage.

Blend

Pinot noir (100%).
