About Louis Latour 2018 Corton-Charlemagne, Grand Cru

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. 2018 was an excellent vintage for these white Burgundy wines.

 

Wine Spectator Selected this #6 of the Top 100 Wines of 2021. They scored it 95 points saying "Fresh and fruity, with aromas and flavors of lemon, pear, white flowers and stone, showing great tension and an underlying mineral component that gives this energy and length. The lemon theme continues on the lingering aftertaste, along with butter and pastry accents. Best from 2022 through 2029."

 

James Suckling scored this 97 points saying "Open and aromatic with honeysuckle flowers, dried apples and mangoes, as well as white peaches and stone. Full-bodied, this grows slowly on the palate with an intense, powerful finish. Lots of cream, cooked apples, lemons and light oak at the very end. Tight and right. Try after 2023."

 

Decanter Magazine scored this 94 points saying "Louis Latour dominates the appellation of Corton-Charlemagne, with 10 ha under vine and lots of different aspects and altitudes to choose from in Aloxe-Corton. This has lovely floral scents that lead you into a palate that's rich, leesy and magisterial with notes of citrus, pear and banana bread, well-integrated new wood and a hint of stony reduction. Consistently the négociant's best white."

 

Burghound.com scored a barrel sample 91-93 saying "Here the beautifully layered nose is at once riper and more complex but also more restrained with its reasonably fresh aromas of apple, spear, spice, herbal tea and soft oak wisps. There is outstanding volume to the equally ripe and powerful flavors that exhibit a lovely underlying tension on the impressively persistent and attractively stony finish where the only nit is hint of warmth."
