About the Wine

Domaine Henri Latour et Fils is a 37-acre estate owned and managed by brothers, Francois and Sylvan Latour, in Auxey-Duresses. They represent the 7th generation of growers. The vineyards— with vines that are 50 to 70 years old—are farmed sustainably using the lutte raisonnée philosophy, an approach that embraces using agrochemicals when only absolutely necessary. The fruit is hand-harvested and sorted in the vineyard and again when it arrives at the Domaine via a sorting table. The vines and the grapes are cared for with all the respect they are due. The end result is a complex, quality Burgundy that also just happens to be a downright steal.

The estate has a rich heritage and tradition and their commitment to craftsmanship and winemaking philosophy further enhances the quality and finesse of their wines. Domaine Henri Latour et Fils has earned a stellar reputation and numerous accolades, and multiple 90+ scores, making their wines a must-taste for wine enthusiasts seeking a truly magnificent experience.

The short supply and global demand for quality Burgundy mean the prices have been skyrocketing over the last decade. We only purchase selected Burgundies that meet our stringent criteria for quality and value and pass our taste tests. At our price, you can afford to fill in more than one empty spot in your cellar.

2022 was an incredible vintage for Burgundy. Vinous Media blessed this year with a 96 point review, and said: "The style of 2022 is primed for early consumption, more than 2019 or 2020.The 2022 Burgundy vintage offers a bounty for those with a passion for its wines. " 

Tasting Notes: 100% Chardonnay. Les Vireuils, transitioning into Les Vireux as it reaches Auxey, is where the Latour family works their magic. They've crafted a pale gold wine that bursts with the aromas of yellow and white fruits, like pear, along with hints of hazelnut and white flowers. It's the epitome of Meursault – rich and full-bodied, with a striking mineral backbone and a delightful finish. This is Meursault at its finest, no question about it.
