Since 1792, the Latour family has been producing one of the world's greatest white wines: Meursault. In 1998, Jean Latour gave way to Vincent and his mother, and they created the Domaine Jean LATOUR LABILLE ET FILS.
Vincent's wife, Cécile, joined them in 2004 after obtaining a BPREA at the CFPPA in Beaune. They had the opportunity to expand the estate with prestigious appellations such as Pommard, St Aubin village and 1er cru les Frionnes, Volnay, Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot as well as Meursault Village, Narvaux and Pellans.
In 2008, Vincent and Cécile created a trading company "Maison Vincent Latour" in order to complete the range with Puligny Montrachet, Chassagne Montrachet les Benoîtes, St Romain, Corton Charlemagne and Meursault 1er Cru Genévrières.
In 2009, Cécile opened a charming and very comfortable 3 épis Gîte de France gîte with an exceptional view of the Murisaltien vineyards, the gîte des Meix sous le Château or "Cécile's house" as some of her very loyal customers say!
In 2011, following the departure of Vincent's mother, the estate changed its entity and took the name of its winemaker, the estate became DOMAINE VINCENT LATOUR.
In 2019, the estate embarks on major changes, Vincent and Cécile build 3 new cellars and a new vat house in order to further improve the quality of the wines produced and to optimise the team's work.
Today, the Vincent Latour estate is an estate where hospitality and quality are combined to perfection in the splendid 18th century vaulted cellars, the ideal place for tasting the estate's wines such as Meursault Perrière, Meursault Charmes and many others.
The wine is aged for 12 months in oak barrels, then 4 to 6 months in vats. No batonnage is used. Few new barrels are used to avoid completely masking the subtle flavours and aromas of Meursault.
The small amount of oak becomes almost imperceptible and contributes, in the case of Meursault, to its nutty, toasty bouquet and complex ripeness. We use large 600 litre barrels (demi-muids) to produce straight and pure wines with great elegance and minerality.
