Corton-Charlamagne Grand Cru (1996) Louis Latour

New

Beautiful golden robe. Honey, herbal aromas of linden and verbena, a firm wine with great aromatic expression, one can also find dried fruits and mushroom notes. Original acidity is there yet quite sophisticated. A racy wine with great gastronomical qualities.

    • After the ravages of the phylloxera epidemic at the end of the 19th century the Latour family took the then unusual decision to tear up the dead Aligoté and Pinot Noir vines and replace them with Chardonnay. This decision leads them to create one of Burgundy's most celebrated white whites.

      Today the Latour family owns 10.5 hectares which makes them the biggest owner in the appellation. The Latour's Corton-Charlemagne vineyards are located on a prime section of the Corton hillside where the south-easterly aspect ensures maximum exposure to the sun. The fruit is harvested as late as possible to guarantee maximum ripeness.

    Louis Latour’s Corton Charlemagne is one of the great “bench mark” wines of white Burgundy. Aged in new 100% new oak for 12 months with 100% malo-lactic fermentation, it’s the classic big rich chardonnay.
