From the heart of their domaine on the Corton hillside, Maison Louis Latour have witnessed more than two centuries of Burgundian history. Founded in 1797 Maison Louis Latour has survived the ages and has become a natural custodian of Burgundy's ancient traditions. Authentic and determinedly independent, the House has always made it a point of honour to remain family owned. It is now run by the seventh Louis Latour who represents the 11th generation of the founding family, who like each generation before him, has worked hard to preserve the company's unique heritage whilst ensuring the future with an ambitious and visionary spirit. The Latour family Domaine has been built up over the years with patience and determination, and today, covers 50 hectares of exceptional vineyard which are recognised each vintage for the quality of their wines.
Chablis is an isolated island of vineyards in the northern section of wine-producing Burgundy halfway between Dijon and Paris. Maison Louis Latour's Chablis is the ultimate expression of what the noble Chardonnay grape is capable of on the region's famous kimmeridgian limestone slopes. The wine is perfumed, lively, clean and steely-tasting with a crisp finish.
Louis Latour Chablis is made using traditional methods in stainless steel vats with everything being temperature controlled. Complete malolactic fermentation is allowed to occur. The wine is then aged for 8 to 10 months in stainless steel vats.
This wine has a golden colour with green reflections. The Chablis 2016 reveals a complex nose with floral aromas. The palate is round with lemon notes and plenty of freshness. There is nice minerality with saline notes on the finish.
