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. Maison Louis Latour's Chablis 'La Chanfleure' is the ultimate expression of the Chardonnay grape in the region's famous Kimmeridgian limestone slopes.
