Louis Latour Corton-Charlemagne 2011

Louis Latour Corton-Charlemagne 750ml 2011   
Sku: 1833146*

After the ravages of the phylloxera epidemic at the end of the 19th century the Latour family took the decision to tear up the dead Aligote and Pinot Noir vines and to replace them with Chardonnay. The Corton-Charlemagne 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.

Tasting notes
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 flavours 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.
