  • The family-run company of Maison Louis Latour is one of the most highly-respected negociant-eleveurs in Burgundy. The Latour family founded the "Maison de negoce" in 1797 and it is still based in Beaune today. The company has built a reputation for tradition and innovation and is renowned throughout the world for the quality of its red and white wines.

    Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
