Founded in 1797, family-run Maison Louis Latour is a very well-respected traditional négociant-éléveur in Burgundy with a rich 200 year history. World-renowned for the quality of its red as well as its white wines, the company has built a reputation for tradition and innovation having pioneered the production of fine wines from outside of the borders of Burgundy.

Latour own a unique Domaine of 50 hectares, which has the largest Grand Cru property in the Côte d'Or with a total of 28.63 hectares. All of the grapes from the Latour vineyards are vinified and aged in the attractive cuverie of Château Corton Grancey in Aloxe-Corton, the first purpose-built winery in France, established in 1834. A perfect example of its ingenuity, a unique railway system with elevators allows the entire wine-making process to be achieved by the use of gravity.

In 1999, the sixth Louis Latour passed the running of the business into the hands of his son, Louis-Fabrice, to continue Maison Louis Latour’s already well-established reputation.
