Marks and reviews
Founded in 1797, Maison Louis Latour is currently managed by the family's 11th generation, headed by Louis-Fabrice Latour. A merchant-winemaker, Louis Latour owns the largest estate of Grands Crus in Burgundy.
Situated in the south-west of Romanée-Saint-Vivant, the parcel "Les Quatre Journaux" benefits from a superb sun exposure. The Latour family has owned part of Romanée-Saint-Vivant since 1898, and now owns 0.8 hectares. The plot "Les Quatre Journaux" takes its name from the old Burgundian unit of length used, one "Journal" corresponding to approximately 0.40 hectares. The vines are 30 years old on average and are planted on iron clay soils.
‘’Les Quatre Journaux" is the emblematic wine of Louis Latour and is an essential reference among fine Romanée-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru wines.
