Technical Info

Description

At the heart of a constellation of Grands Crus from Côte de Nuits is to be found Le Chambertin. The terroir of Chambertin is legendary for its exceptional richness due to a geological phenomenon called "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 familydescendants
