Member Review by Athon:

Great nose; creamy, anise, asian pear. Light minerality, sticky mouthfeel. Little oak on the finish. Simple wine with a fantastic aroma.

The Latours have been vintners in Burgundy since the 17th century, slowly building a unique Domaine of 125 acres. Maison Louis Latour currently has the largest Grand Cru property in all of the Cote d’Or with a total of 71.58 acres. The vineyards extend from Chambertin in the north to Chevalier-Montrachet in the south and are solely planted with the two noble grape varieties: Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. All of the grapes from the vineyards we own are vinified and aged in the attractive cuverie of Château Corton Grancey in Aloxe-Corton. The winery was the first purpose-built cuverie in France and remains the oldest still-functioning. A unique rail-way system with elevators allows the entire wine-making process to be achieved by the use of gravity. This eliminates the threat of oxidation from unnecessary pumping of the must. Since 1985, Louis Latour has been selling the wines from its own vineyards under the name Domaine Louis Latour. The Latour family founded the ‘Maison de négoce’, an important shipping company, in 1797, and it is still based at 18 Rue des Tonneliers in Beaune to this day. The company is unique in Burgundy in that it is still family-owned and family-run, having been passed down from father to son for over ten generations. To celebrate our Bicentenary in 1797, we published a commemorative book and were admitted into the exclusive club of the Hénokiens. This club only accepts companies that are leaders in their respective fields, remain family owned, have a history of 200 years’ experience and still bear the name of their founder. There are only approximately 30 of these companies in the world. Maison Louis Latour ships its wines to over 60 countries worldwide. These world-class Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs can be found on the most famous dining tables around the globe. Read less

Chablis 2008 is pale yellow and exhibits expressive floral notes such as hawthorn. On the palate, the floral character is complemented by mineral notes, such as flint. This wine reveals an aromatic power that is pleasant and long. Can be tasted now but will fully divulge its character in the next two years. Tasted July 8th, 2009.

Wine Tasting NotesA bright pale gold color with a hint of green. The nose is round and rich with intense fresh fruit aromas balanced by a mineral steeliness. This is classic Chablis, medium-bodied with a good crisp finish and pronounced ripe fruit characteristics. Chablis is an isolated island of wine in the northern section of viticultural Burgundy halfway between Dijon and Paris. Maison Louis Latours Chablis is the ultimate expression of what the noble Chardonnay grape is capable of on the regions famous kimmeridgian limestone slopes. The wine is perfumed, lively, clean and steely-tasting with a crisp finish.
