The Latour family has been established on the Route Nationale in Meursault for many generations. In 1958 the Latour family merged with the estate of the Giraud family to form the current configuration.
Since the 1990's, with the arrival of the articulate and perfectionist winemaker, Jean-Pierre Latour, the estate has undergone what the Review des Vins de France has called a true cultural revolution. In a major commitment to improving quality, the estate adopted organic agricultural practices and reduced yields to 25-35 hectoliters per hectare. Jean-Pierre's whites are classic Burgundies intense and concentrated, stylish and powerful, layered and balanced. They combine lemon, pear, quince and citrus fruits and hints of spice, smoke and toast with the characteristic mineral qualities of the soil. At the same time, they are lean and dry, focused and true to their appellation and vineyard site. He is now regarded as one of the top echelon of producers of white Burgundy.
