- The Grand Cru vineyard of Bâtard-Montrachet lies between the picturesque villages of Puligny Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet, home to the world's greatest white wines. Only a narrow strip of land separates this 11.86 hectare vineyard from the great Montrachet itself. Its gentle easterly-facing slope is made up of a deep, rich, gravelly soil which has a limestone base, world renowned for the production of high-quality Chardonnay. Located just below the Montrachet, "Clos Poirier" is a single plot of 0.85 hectares, easily recognisable as it has the only north-south facing vines in this specific vineyard site. The surface area of the appellation worked by Louis Latour is 0.43 hectares located in the eastern part.
