2012 Château Corton Grancey Grand Cru, Louis Latour
'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 five areas of Domaine Latour Corton Grand Cru: Bressandes, Perrières, Grèves, Clos du Roi and Chaumes, 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. The Château Corton Grancey 2012 is an intense ruby colour. Clean and fresh on the nose, aromas of cassis and liquorice emerge. It is an ample and powerful wine with a slightly minty aftertaste. Delicious and will cellar through to 2035.
"From vines around the Latour winery, this is a generous and full-bodied wine. It has ripe tannins along with fragrant acidity and swathes of red-berry fruits cut with acidity. Structured and dense, it has weight and the potential richness as it ages."
