Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru, Louis Latour, Burgundy, France, 2017
Round with a pungent bouquet of grilled almonds and vanilla. Nice fullness in the mouth with integrated oak and a long, mineral finish. Even if it is a flattering wine quite young, it deserves a few years of cellaring to reach its peak.
"Cask sample. Racy and fine and a good expression of the appellation. Polished and lightly almondy. Clean, fresh and relatively light." 17/20 points Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com, December 2018
"The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is performing well in bottle, mingling hints of citrus oil, green apple and pear with notes of warm bread and fresh pastry in a pretty bouquet. Medium to full-bodied, muscular and concentrated, this is a powerful but lively rendition of Latour's emblematic white." 92/100 points William Kelley, Wine Advocate, February 2020
