路易拉圖酒廠(Maison Louis Latour)自1797年創立以來,家族代代傳承經營,堅守傳統和品質,以優良的布根地紅、白酒品質聞名世界,是法國布根地伯恩產區五大著名酒商之一,在世界各大高級飯店與餐廳的酒單上都看得到路易拉圖,更榮選為2008年G8高峰會指定用酒。

家族代代傳承經營的路易拉圖酒廠 (Maison Louis Latour),是法國布根地伯恩產區五大著名酒商之一,自1797年創立以來,一直堅守傳統和品質,但也勇於革新和創造,以其優良的布根地紅、白酒品質聞名世界,同時也是生產布根地產區以外如Ardèche(阿德榭)的優質葡萄酒的先驅。

拉圖家族自17世紀以來便開始擁有與增加自有葡萄園,如今在布根地已有50公頃的葡萄園,範圍。從北部的香貝丹(Chambertin)延伸到南邊的歇瓦里耶-
蒙哈榭(Chevalier-Montrachet),其中有30公頃的特級葡萄園,包括0.8公頃的香貝丹、1公頃的侯馬內-聖維馮(Romanee Saint Vivant)、17公頃的高登(Corton) 以及近9公頃的高登查理曼(Corton-Charlemagne),並是在金丘(Cote d’Or) 擁有最大比例的特級葡萄園的酒商。

路易拉圖所有的自有葡萄園裡所生產的葡萄,皆在阿羅斯-高登 (Aloxe-Corton)的高登格蘭榭堡(Château Corton Grancey)裡的酒窖釀製與陳年。這是法國第一個依功能性建造的酒窖,仍維持傳統的運作方式,為固守傳統,至今路易拉圖所有自有葡萄園的酒全部使用人工踩皮,另一特色是紅酒較少使用新橡木桶陳年,而新橡木桶則用於白酒,ㄧ兩年後再使用於紅酒,與某些布根地酒廠方式相反。種種堅持,使路易拉圖白酒富有濃郁的果味與香草、榛果等香氣,紅酒則口感圓潤豐富。

路易拉圖酒廠有許多其他與眾不同之處,例如擁有自己的橡木桶酒廠、印刷廠、船運公司,連瓶型也有專用形狀,堅持自己的風格。
