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 family descendants.
Burgundy: Firm and intensely flavoured wines, acidity less marked than in Bordeaux.
Low temperatures in spring resulted in late flowering. After a warm start to summer, August and September were cool and rainy. The resulting wines were tight with pronounced acidity, which needed time to soften. It's this acidic backbone which has kept them alive to this day — now fully mature, the fruit shows itself better.
