Description

Pouilly-Fuisse is one of the most popular as well as most prestigious wines from southern Burgundy. This fine 2013, with its pale yellow color and emerald highlights is naturally unctuous due to the low yields of the vintage. There are beautiful white fruit aromas that mix very well with fine almond notes. There are also Muscat-like aromatics which linger in the mouth. A wine to be savored while young with lovely minerality and focused finish.

Maison Louis Latour is one of the most highly-respected négociant-éléveurs in Burgundy. Maison Louis Latour is the producer of some of the finest Burgundian wines but has also pioneered the production of fine wines from outside of the confines of Burgundy. These wines from the Ardèche and the Côteaux de Verdon are slowly gaining esteem for their unmatchable quality outside of Burgundy.

All of the grapes from the vineyards owned by the Latour family are vinified and aged in the attractive cuverie of Château Corton Grancey in Aloxe-Corton. The winery was the first purpose-built cuverie in France and remains the oldest still-functioning. A unique railway system with elevators allows the entire wine-making process to be achieved by the use of gravity. This eliminates the threat of oxidation from unnecessary pumping of the must. Since 1985, Louis Latour has been selling the wines of its own vineyards under the name Domaine Louis Latour.

Louis Latour has been a leader in the environmentally responsible winemaking for over 15 years.
