Description:

At the heart of a constellation of Grand Crus from Côte de Nuits is Chambertin. The terroir of Chambertin is legendary for its exceptional richness due to a geological phenomenon called an alluvial fan. This deeply complex terroir is characterized by brown calcareous soils. It breeds a powerful and complex wine with a long ageing potential, combining the robustness of Pinot Noir and the taste of the “terroir”.
At the end of the 19th century the Latour family acquired 0.81 hectares in the Chambertin Grand Cru appellation, forming a beautiful parcel extending from the top to the bottom of the hillside, closer to that of Latricières rather than Clos de Bèze. We took the name of Chambertin “Cuvée Héritiers Latour”, as the parcel has been passed down through the generations of Latour family descendants.

Tasting Note :

Our Chambertin Grand Cru “Cuvée Héritiers Latour” 2022 has a deep, dark ruby colour. Its nose reveals aromas of cherry and undergrowth. Round, full and suave on the palate, it offers aromas of cherry once again as well as hints of liquorice. A very long-lasting finish.

Food Pairing :

Venison stew – roasted deer with pepper and mashed celery – Soumaintrain cheese.
