La Chanfleure is an old word used synonymously with “tâte-vin”, it is actually the pipette used by the cellarmen to take some wine from the barrel to taste it during the vinification. We chose to link the term “La Chanfleure” to some of our wines in order to assign them an additional recognition element. Chablis is an isolated island of vineyards in the northern section of viticultural Burgundy. Maison Louis Latour’s Chablis “La Chanfleure” is the ultimate expression of what the Chardonnay grape is capable of on the region’s famous kimmeridgian limestone slopes.
