Louis-Fabrice Latour, seventh Louis Latour and eleventh generation of the founding line, took over the management of the House in 1999. Louis-Fabrice wishes to maintain the family culture while combining the most modern methods with the already well-established traditional ones: “It is a rule understood in the family that each generation innovates for the generations to come”, explains Louis.
