Louis Latour came to the Ardèche in 1979 attracted by its climate and the clay limestone soils that are perfect for the Chardonnay vine. The consistent climate and abundant sunshine perfectly ripen the grapes, whilst the drying Mistral wind eliminates the risk of rot. Grand Ardèche is treated as if it were grown in one of the prestigious vineyards of the Côte d’Or. Fully-ripened grapes are selected and pressed lightly before being aged in oak barrels made at the Latour cooperage in Beaune. This wine offers aromas of fresh almonds and vanilla with fresh green apple and citrus overtones. On the palate, the wine has lovely notes of brioche, almond, fresh apricot and vanilla. This wine has a golden hue and is full bodied, reminiscent of the great Burgundian villages of Meursault. Best served with fish or charcuterie meat, or as an aperitif.
