Like most Burgundy domaines Latour-Giraud was formed by the fusion of two families. The Latour family’s wine holding can be traced back to the French Revolution and the Giraud family’s ownership in Meursault dates back to 1850. In 1958 Pierre Latour married the only daughter of Charles Giraud creating the domaine. It is now run by his son Jean-Pierre, who I found to be one of the most honest and interesting vignerons in Burgundy.
Latour-Giraud has good sized holdings in Meursault and is the largest landowner in the Premier Cru Genevrieres. They also have the Puligny Premier Cru Champs-Canet and a little Cotes de Nuits red as well as Bourgogne.
