Description

Aloxe-Corton holds a special place in the heart of the Latour family, their ancestral home for over three centuries. Here, in the heart of the Premier Cru region, Domaine Louis Latour exerts its influence over more than 90% of the production, centered around the iconic Château and cuverie of Corton-Grancey. These venerable vines constitute a vital cornerstone of Domaine Louis Latour's heritage. The name 'Les Chaillots' pays homage to the stony, pebbly nature of the soil in this vineyard, as 'caillou' elegantly denotes pebble in the French language. The wines of Aloxe-Corton beautifully harmonize the finesse characteristic of the Côte de Beaune with the mellow, robust allure of the Côte de Nuits, creating a truly unique and captivating sensory experience.
