Domaine Louis Latour covers 48 hectares of vineyard, including 27 hectares of Grand Cru, and is the largest landholder of Grand Cru vineyards in Burgundy. The domaine is centred in the village of Aloxe-Corton which has been the Latour’s family home since the creation of the house. Chablis is an isolated island of vineyards in the northern section of viticultural Burgundy.
La Chanfleure is an old word used synonymously with ‘tâte-vin’. It is actually the pipette used by the cellarmen to take some wine from the barrel to taste it during the vinification. The 2014 Maison Louis Latour Chablis ‘La Chanfleure’ is the ultimate expression of what the Chardonnay grape is capable of on the region’s famous Kimmeridgian limestone slopes.
This is an elegant and wonderful introduction to Chablis, but complex enough to intrigue even advanced sommeliers. Expressive of the refined Kimmeridgian limestone soil from which it originates. Spirited and bright with acidity. Fresh lemon, warm and muscular mid palate with a saline finish. Rather flexible as long as you don’t overdo it with heavier proteins. Shellfish, seafood, salads, charcuterie and cheeses pair extremely well.
