Why Buy Me

Domaine Giraud-Latour is a family run estate in the Cote de Beaune. Over 80% of their holdings are given over to the production of white wines, the remaining 20% are dedicated to red. The winemaking is led by brother and sister team Jean-Pierre & Florence Latour, who show real attention to detail& focus in both vineyard and winery. Read more.

Winemaker's Pitch

La Refene is one of Pommard's lesser-known 1er Cru vineyards, and it typically produces dense, structured red wines with smoky, spicy characters and ripe tannins. The vineyard sits above the village of Pommard itself, on the lower slopes of the Cote d'Or. It is situated on the edge of the Dheune river valley, which cuts westwards into the Cote d'Or. This gives La Refene an easterly aspect that catches the morning sun, giving vines a chance to ripen in the otherwise cool climate in Burgundy.
