Côte de Beaune
The region is mostly focused on making some of the best Chardonnay in the world, but to the North of Beaune near to the border of Côte de Nuits is the home of the Latour empire. One of the only producers of red Grand Cru wines in the area, which tend to be lighter and more fragrant than the northern counterparts, these three wines arrive off vineyard parcels from the Corton hill. The limited offerings featured from Maison Louis Latour are in honour of the legend behind the brand who passed away less than two weeks ago unfortunately. Louis was the tenth generation to take the helm of the company, navigating successfully through world wars and depressions to elevate the winery to the international stage as the premium brand in Burgundy with largest holding of Grand Cru vineyards.
Côte de Nuits
Situated to the north of Côte de Beaune and just below the town of Dijon, this region is well known for making some of the best Pinot Noir in the world gaining astronomical prices at auctions. The region is one of the smallest appellations in France and vineyards are often divided up with many different owners per hectare. The land is extremely sought after and generally passed down through inheritance rather than sold commercially but can fetch unbelievable figures.
