Louis Latour is one of the most well-known wine merchants in the Cote de Beaune region of Burgundy. This family-run company owns 50 hectares (125 acres) of vineyards between Chambertin in the north and Chevalier-Montrachet in the south.
The Domaine is situated in the medieval village of Aloxe-Corton, which has been the family’s home since they began in viticulture. The Chateau at Corton Grancey was built in 1749 and the winery dates back to 1832.
