Honoring the Environment

For more than two centuries, Maison Louis Latour has been crafting some of the world’s finest wines. A family-run operation since its 1797 origins, the company is now helmed by seventh generation Louis Latour, Louis-Fabrice Latour. With a total of more than 71 acres, Maison Louis Latour is the Cote d’Or’s largest property to have attained the prestigious Grand cru designation -- the highest level in the vineyard classification of Burgundy.

What makes Maison Louis Latour wines different than the rest? While the company utilizes modern techniques, it uniquely respects and honors nature -- with climate and terroir above all else informing their winemaking process. Due to Maison Louis Latour’s belief that 80 percent of a finished wine’s quality depends on the work done in the vineyard, all red grapes are meticulously cared for before being hand-harvested as late in the season as possible. Through it all, Maison Louis Latour remains committed to the Burgundian traditions for the vinification of its wines.

The Event

Wild boar bolognese with blue cheese gnocchi; roasted cuttlefish with Cambazola, mascarpone, caramelized shallots and fire-roasted tomatoes, and grilled Key West shrimp with mango passion fruit soy-fermented vegetables are just a few of the ingenious items Chef Duffy has up the sleeve of his chef’s jacket for the day. Each consummate course will be partnered with sublime wine selections, including a 2013 Louis Latour Pouilly-Vinzelles “En Paradis,” a 2014 Louis Latour Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, and a N/V Simonnet-Febvre Crémant de Bourgogne Rosé.
