About Corton-Charlemagne, Grand Cru 2015 Louis Latour
Famous Grand Cru White Burgundy. The vineyard of Corton-Charlemagne is situated in the prime area of the hillside of Corton where its southeasterly aspect ensures maximum exposure to the sun. Louis Latour is one of the most renowned producers of this exceptional wine. The fruit is harvested as late as possible to guarantee maximum ripeness. 2015 was an excellent vintage for these white Burgundy wines.
Wine Spectator scored this 94 points saying "Vanilla, clove and toast notes shade the core flavors of apple, melon and stone in this rangy white. Balanced in a broad-shouldered way, this offers echoes of mineral and spice on the long finish. Best from 2020 through 2033."
Wine Enthusiast awarded it "Cellar Selection" status and scored it 95 points saying "A flagship wine for this producer, this is rich and seductive, opulent even. Bold yellow fruits, ripe apples and pears are surrounded by a youthful texture that will allow it to age. The fruit and the touches of wood are still present, but will integrate beautifully. Drink this wine from 2023."
James Suckling scored this 97 points saying "So perfumed with exotic, tropical-fruit aromas that draw you into the glass. Full-bodied, layered and textured with soft creamy tannins and light stone and walnut undertones. Gun flint. Always a fantastic white. So constant. Drink or hold."
