Louis Latour is one of the biggest names in French wine, and has been for a long time. The original Louis is long gone, but Louis-Fabrice Latour--the current heir to the name and the domain--will be joining us to pour a wide selection of Latour wines. We'll start out by the bocce court, tasting a number of wines from the 2008 vintage, and then we'll head inside to have dinner. For dinner we are featuring some older vintages of wines from the tasting, including two of the jewels in Latour's cap, the Grand Crus of Corton-Charlemagne and Corton-Grancey. Should be fun.
