Description
  • Aloxe-Corton has been the home of the Latour family and the heart of Domaine Louis Latour for centuries. The village of Aloxe-Corton is located in the north of the Côte de Beaune on a stony hillside at the foot of the hill of Corton. It was in 1862 that the name of the climat Corton was added to the village name Aloxe. The vineyards of Domaine Louis Latour surround this famous village and yield a classic Aloxe-Corton.

Wine tasting
  • Tasting Note
    Ruby red with a perfume of cherry and liquorice, typical of Pinot. On tasting it is round but still a little tight. With time this will evolve beautifully.
    The Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru "Domaine Latour" reveals a beautiful garnet color and fragrance intoxicating spice, licorice, dried fruit and underbrush. On the palate there are hints of earthiness. Aromas of chlorophylle characterize the finish.
  • Food Pairing
