Louis Latour, Chateau Corton Grancey Grand Cru Burgundy 2015
Cote de Beaune, Burgundy, France
96 pts. James Suckling: "Incredibly subtle and complex with dried herbs, spices, meat, leaves and dried fruit. Full-bodied, superfine and polished tannins and a fantastic finish. What a fantastic Grancey! Drink in 2022."
95 pts. Wine Enthusiast, 2017 Top 100 Cellar Selections: #56 "This wine from the Corton Grand Cru vineyard is packed with tannins as well as smoky fruit. It is richly structured and firm, yet the fruit is equally powerful, showing bold black fruits struck against bright acidity. The wine will need considerable aging; drink from 2025."
94 pts. Wine Spectator: "A rich style, sporting cherry, raspberry, spice and earth flavors. Moderate tannins lend support, while the flavors persist on the long finish. Though balanced overall, this tightens up at the end, suggesting that the best is yet to come. Best from 2021 through 2038. -B.S."
FROM THE WINERY:
"Grancey" was the name of the last owners of the chateau situated on the road of Corton, before the Latour family bought it in 1891. This wine, produced by Maison Louis Latour, is unique and exclusive. It is a blend of four areas of Domaine Latour Corton Grand Cru: Bressandes, Perrières, Grèves and Clos du Roi, the proportions of which vary depending on the vintage. The average age of the vines is over 40 years. After aging individually, only the best barrels are assembled to create the Château Corton Grancey. It is a wine that is produced only if the grapes are of a perfect maturity, vintages judged inferior are systematically declassified.
Fermentation: Traditional in open vats
Ageing: 10 to 12 months ageing in oak barrels, 35% new
Barrels: Louis Latour cooperage, French oak, medium toasted
The Château Corton Grancey 2015 has a deep ruby red colour. It has a complex bouquet of blackurrant and liquorice. In the mouth, it is round and ample displaying notes of black fruits, liquorice and chlorophyll with oaky notes. Beautiful length with freshness, almost saline.
Food Pairing: Wild boar - roasted beef - roasted quail - duck "à l'orange" - mature cheeses
