Meet The Winemakers

The history of the Latour-Giraud goes back over three centuries and is today run by Jean-Pierre Latour. The Domaine holds 10 hectares of prime vineyards in Meursault, roughly split into 80% white wines and 20 % reds. The majority of their white vines are located in the five most famous vineyards of the village Meursault: Les Genevrières, Les Charmes, Les Perrières, Les Bouchères et Le Poruzot, and with 2 hectares in the 1er Cru Genevrières, Latour-Giraud is the most important owner of this superb vineyard considered to be one of the best three vineyards in Meursault, just behind Les Perrières and as good as Les Charmes. Wines from here tend to age beautifully with haunting elegance and fine, stony minerality. Low yields, brilliant winemaking and no fining or filtration, make this one of the most exciting domaines in the village at present.

Their Meursault Cuvée Charles Maxime (a blend of Les Vireuils, Les Corbins and Les Pelles) is plump, rich and generous. The wine is fermented and matured in barrel (around 1/3 new) for 15-16 months. The very fine 1er Cru Genevrières is from two perfectly sited parcels, comprising 2.5 hectares at the top of the vineyard.
