  • The Premier Cru vineyard of "Les Chenevottes" sits slightly higher up the slope compared to the unparalleled white Grand Cru Montrachet. These two vineyards have much in common sharing similar soil composition, exposure to the sun, orientation and flavour. "Les Chenevottes" wines are an outstanding example of what this village is capable of and of the unrelentingly high standards of selection and vinification practiced by Maison Louis Latour. "Les Chenevottes" is derived from the word "cheneve" meaning hemp in old French which indicates that this vineyard was once an old hemp field.

Press review
    • Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Chenevottes" 2020 - James Suckling - 95/100 pts

      Effusive nose of candied and fresh citrus with a lot of Amalfi lemon, plus a touch of fresh pineapple. Powerful and concentrated, but with wonderful freshness on the palate. Then a big wave of chalky minerality rolls over you at the long and very structured finish. Drink or hold.
