- Following several years of reflection the new Coteaux Bourguignons appellation was launched in November 2011.
This new appellation offers the freedom to explore and associate different Burgundian terroirs and grape varieties in Burgundy. The grapes used in the elaboration of Coteaux Bourguignons can be sourced from the entire Burgundy vineyard. Single varietal or blended, it allow our winemaker to reveal a rich aromatic range in the typical style of the Maison.
Thanks to our bicentennial experience in the heart of burgundy, Maison Louis Latour has the opportunity to express through this wine, his traditional but innovative vision of Burgundy wines.
