Maison Louis Latour is one of the most innovative producers in Burgundy whilst maintaining its traditional image. In 1979, with a view to expanding the business the valley of the Ardèche river with its clay and limestone-based soils was chosen as the ideal location to produce top-quality Chardonnay wines. 2018 is delicious, from its fresh green apple nose to its riper red apple fruit flavours sprinkled with hazelnuts, honey, and a dusting of lees. It is the perfect introduction to white Burgundy and a style that would be widely welcomed in the New World. If you love simple seafood dishes, this is the wine for you, back up the truck.

Huon Hooke

"Light straw-yellow hue, with a smoky-reductive and oak-kissed bouquet, which is surprisingly complex for a wine of its station. A subtle honey undertone. The wine is rich, full and expansive across the palate, dry and savoury, rich and fleshy and dense. There is a fair degree of phenolic here, and the wine has the body and fleshiness to cope with that. It's not a finesse wine but a full-bodied chardonnay with a stack of flavour."
