Description

Aloxe-Corton is the home village of the Latour family who have been closely involved in the
affairs of the commune for over three centuries. Of the total hectarage of this Premier Cru, the
Domaine Louis Latour control over 13% of production centred on the famous Château and
cuverie of Corton-Grancey. These vines are an important part of the Domaine Louis Latour.
The name "Les Chaillots" refers to the stony, pebbly nature of the soil in this vineyard, as
"caillou" means pebble in french. There is an alliance in the wines of Aloxe-Corton between the
finesse of a Côte de Beaune and the mellow, powerful appeal of the Côte de Nuits.
