One-off: Romanée Saint-Vivant and other icons of the Côte de Nuits, sourced directly from Maison Louis Latour

L Latour 9

These cuvées are incredibly rare! Maison Louis Latour, long-since a partner of iDealwine, opened its cellar doors for us for an exceptional day of tasting. It still contains some genuine treasures… We are happy to offer you some bottles which are absolutely unfindable, which until now hadn’t even left the cellar. Among the rare bottles in this sale, you will find several bottles from the illustrious parcel Les Quatre Journaux. Situated in the heart of the Grand Cru Romanée-Saint-Vivant, it rubs shoulders with vines cultivated by none other than Domaine de la Romanée Conti.

Take the time to browse this sale, which tells the story of this house and the emblematic Grands Crus that it produces.

Last July, the iDealwine team was lucky enough to visit the house, and to explore its cellars. We were stupefied by the mature vintages offered at the tasting, vintages which are now for sale on our platform, fellow oenophiles.

Relive the moment with us with this photo album.

Maison Louis Latour, a family-run domain since its creation in 1797, is one of the most renowned merchant-winemaker in Burgundy.

Oak barrel making requires true craftsmanship and allows producers to make exceptional cuvées, thanks to the wine’s contact with the oak.

The house has been tastefully renovated, inkeeping with the family feel, with a picturesque view of the vineyards.

The Corton Grancey property’s deed of sale is itself very interesting, with the sale of a chateau, a cellar, a house and 35 hectares of vines, after which the selection of parcels is listed. Some vines have since been removed due to phylloxera.

You simply have to visit the cellars of the Corton Grancey property – which were entirely restored in 2014 – at least once in your lifetime!

The architectural prowess of the cellar built in 1832, with several superimposed levels, makes vinification by gravity possible. In the photo, the system of cauldrons on rails above the casks.

The moisture on the stone and the damp draping over the bottles makes for a surreal atmosphere.

The labyrinth of alleys contains incredible wines, sometimes dating back over a century!

Wines from another era.

A tasting of first-class red wines which, extraordinarily, preceded the whites.

Our tasting includes bottles which were cellared for several decades in optimum conditions, a few hundred metres from the tasting room.

Truly exceptional cuvées!

We hope you enjoyed these photos as much as we enjoyed our day at Maison Louis Latour! In order to find these true gems and taste them for yourself, why not see our sale of Maison Louis Latour old vintages. Don’t delay – this sale will be closing next Tuesday!
