STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
The level of detail and knowledge required to navigate successfully around Burgundy and its Crus can be dizzying. But there is one term that should draw your focus and that is “mid-slope”. Vineyards located here are regarded as the most prestigious. Domaine Latour-Giraud’s Clos des Chenes site sits mid-slope. They also have an edge over their peers in the form of perfectionist winemaker Jean-Pierre Latour. Since taking over he has made a major commitment to improving quality, adopted organic practices and producing wines of great delicacy, silkiness and distinction.
