2019 Domaine Louis Latour Chambertin Cuvee Heretiers Latour Grand Cru
Founded in 1797 Maison Louis Latour has survived the ages, and 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. The Latour family Domaine has been built up over the years and today covers 50 hectares of exceptional vineyards.
The 2019 Chambertin Grand Cru Cuvée Heritiers Latour is very promising, mingling notes of berries and rose petals with hints of rich soil tones, warm spices and licorice. Full-bodied, layered and concentrated, it's beautifully balanced and complete, with ripe tannins and a long, precise finish.

This is what makes Burgundy so special – it’s so easy to enjoy, with amazing black-cherry fruit, yet it’s so deep and complex. Wonderful richness, below which lies a major tannin structure, then the minerality and lively acidity kick in and push this out in the direction of infinity. Makes you glad to be alive! Drink or hold.
