Description
  • Maison Louis Latour, in keeping with its traditional preoccupation with quality, purchases grapes from competent growers with holdings in the most esteemed vineyards in the Mâcon-Villages zone. The wine is bottled during the following Spring at the 'Clos Chameroy' in the outskirts of Beaune. In this way Mâcon-Villages « Chameroy » represents the epitome of classical white Burgundy reflecting the fusion between the noble Chardonnay grape and the calciferous terrain of the area. It possesses a fresh, creamy bouquet which prepares the palate for the suave, billowing aftertaste.
