Tracing their family owned winery and heritage back to 1731, Louis Latour continues to be one of the most established wineries in Burgundy. Maintaining their near 250 year tradition of simultaneously guarding and remaining true to Burgundian tradition while adopting modern innovation, each branch extension of the family brings new input and originality to the Latour dynasty and their wines.
Becoming a wine merchant in 1867 to more closely control the commercialisation of their wine and ensure their vision remains adhered to, Louis Latour continues to take matters into their own hands being a pioneer for sustainable agriculture allowing the finest and purest representation of the local terroir and grape varieties shine through their wines, resulting in over 29 hectares worth of grand cru vineyard, the highest classification for quality in the Burgundy region.
As head winemaker of over 20 year, Jean-Charles Thomas is not only responsible for the 50 over hectares of Domaine or directly owned vineyards, but is also responsible for the negociant aspect that covers working with around 500 growers from whom they purchase grape, grape juice and wine with some working relationships spanning generations and is driven by trust and a mutual vision of winemaking.
When cultivating the Louis Latour wines, Jean-Charles Thomas stresses the importance of the richness of the natural environment and terroir evident in the quality of the fruit driven wines displayed delicately and not overpoweringly to produce wines with elegance, balance and finesse.
A personal favourite label of Jean-Charles Thomas continues to be the Louis Latour Pouilly-Vinzelles “ En Paradis” that notably use historic, roman vineyards for their chardonnay grapes.
The 2021 Louis Latour Macon – Lugny is cultivated at high altitudes in the Macon region that due to its exceptional terroir, was the only village planted with Chardonnay 30 years ago. With only the finest quality grapes chosen for harvest, the wine is fermented in stainless steel vats to preserve the freshness of the fruit with complete malolactic conversion to give the wines depth and a rounded oak flavour.
The 2021 Louis Latour Macon – Lugny “Les Genievres” displays a pale gold colour in the glass. A rich and opulent nose with aromas of lemon, floral and honey. Presenting with great freshness on the palate and a long finish, the 2021 Louis Latour Macon-Lugny is a perfect and more cost effective alternative to the renowned Chablis, offering an incredibly well rounded wine at great value.
