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.

Situated just south of Volnay and Pommard in the Côte de Beaune, Meursault is the most extensive southerly white wine commune of the Côte-d'Or. Surprisingly enough for an appellation of this quality, no Grand Cru exists, however the high quality of the 1er Cru more then compensates for this. The vineyard of Meursault « Charmes » is located just to the south of the village and is recognised to be one of the finest plots producing the Meursault appellation.

8 to 10 months ageing in oak barrels, 50% new. Louis Latour cooperage, French oak, medium toasted.
