About this winery
The family-run company of Maison Louis Latour is one of the most highly respected negociants-eleveurs in Burgundy. Renowned throughout the world for the quality of its red and white wines, the company has built a reputation for tradition and innovation.
Of a golden colour, the Chassagne "La Maltroie" 2015 reveals an aromatic nose with grapefruit, vanilla and grilled almonds. In the mouth, notes of yellow fruits and citrus fruit are present. Beautiful tension in final.
The history of wine-producing Burgundy goes back to ancient times and the vineyard parcel names demonstrate this. The Latin origin of Maltroie, "Marturetum", leads us to believe that this parcel lies on the top of an ancient burial ground dating to before the IV century. Situated on a slight incline at an altitude of 240-255m, this parcel of almost 3 hectares profits from a southeasterly exposure and stony clay soils.
