||Corton Grancey, Grand Cru 2005 Domaine Latour
Grand Cru red Burgundy from the Louis Latour estate vineyards. 100% Pinot Noir. This particular wine is only produced in years when the Pinot Noir grapes reach perfect maturity. The wine derives from the following holdings: Les Bressandes, Les Chaumes, Les Pougets, Les Perrières and Les Grèves, all of which are planted with vines with an average age of over 40 years.
After about 18 months of ageing, each cask is then meticulously tasted and only the finest ones, showing the best colour, bouquet and capacity to age, will be blended to make Château Corton-Grancey. 2005 was an outstanding vintage for red Burgundy and this wine is stellar.

Corton Grancey, Grand Cru 2005 Domaine Latour
I recieved a bottle of this as a gift. Should this wine be drank now or will it age well if sellered?

This is a truly great Red Burgundy. You can drink it now but it would be better off cellaring from anywhere from 5 to 15 years.
