Food Pairings for Louis Latour Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru
Wine Tasting Notes An ample and powerful nose. The mouth offers a rich palet of aromas: fresh almond, honey and melted vanilla. The wine is very well-structured. It is already harmonious but be patient if you want to fully enjoy it: it needs a few more years to reach its peak and to fully express its complexity. After the ravages of the phylloxera aphid at the end of the 19th century it was the Latour family that took the now-celebrated decision to tear up the dead Aligot and Pinot Noir vines and to replace them with Chardonnay. The vineyard is situated in the prime area of the hillside of Corton where its southeasterly aspect ensures maximum exposure to the sun. The fruit is harvested as late as possible to guarantee maximum ripeness. This Grand Cru wine has a citrus bouquet with a rich tropical fruit character. It is intensely powerful and fills the mouth with a multiplicity of flavors ending in a fine, steely finish which lingers on the palate for minutes. This wine needs 4 to 5 years to open up and can age for up to 20 years.
