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.

Santenay is the most southerly village in the Côte de Beaune and produces both red and white wines. The red wines from Santenay are reputed to be tannic and well-structured. They say of Santenay that the wines have the soul of Volnay and the body of Pommard.
