Country Of Origin: France
Maison Louis Latour is one of the best known merchants and n�gociants in Beaune and has a reputation for producing wines of quality and individuality. The company owns over 45 hectares of prime vineyards. The Latour family, growers in the C�te de Beaune since at least 1731, arrived in Aloxe in 1768, acquiring several vineyards on and around the hill of Corton. They thrived sufficiently in the 19th century that they were able to buy the n�gociant business of Lamarosse P�re et Fils in Beaune (18 rue des Tonneliers, still the base of Maison Louis Latour) in 1867, while in 1890 they bought the Ch�teau de Corton Grancey, it�s cuverie and 17 hectares of vineyards from the Comte de Grancey whose vinous holdings had suffered badly from phylloxera. Ten years later the Latours added holdings in two C�te de Nuits grands crus, Roman�e St-Vivant and Chambertin. The current boss, Louis-Fabrice, born in 1964, is the seventh Louis Latour to preside over the business. Winemaking is now in the hands of Jean-Charles Thomas, in succession to Jean-Pierre Jobard, while Boris Champy has replaced Denis Fetzmann in charge of the vineyards. As yet there have been few significant changes, although there is an air of something about to happen.
