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. 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 withan ambitious and visionary spirit.
Clos de la Vigne au Saint is a very old vineyard; the earliest known record of its existence is in 1375 when it is mentioned in the records of the Chapter of Saulieu. The Latour family have a long connection with this vineyard which began in 1738 when Louis Latour's great great grandmother owned a section of the vineyard. Since then, it has remained in family hands, passing from generation to generation. The vineyard has perfect southerly exposure on the Corton hill lying on a bedrock outcrop towards the bottom of the slope. The soil is a rusty red colour and rich in marl, which gives the wines distinct aromas. This wine possesses the elegance that we expect from a Côte d'Or Grand Cru and will age particularly well.
Corton "Clos de la Vigne au Saint" 2020 has an intense red ruby hue and offers a cherry and licorice nose. These aromas can also be found in the mouth, along with notes of nutmeg. This wine is full bodied and very delicate. The tannins are well integrated and the finish is long and softly oaky.
