Latour Corton Charlemagne, 2013

$134.99

Description
After the ravages of the phylloxera epidemic at the end of the 19th century the Latour family took the then unusual decision to tear up the dead Aligoté and Pinot Noir vines and replace them with Chardonnay. This decision leads them to create one of Burgundy's most celebrated white whites. 

Today the Latour family owns 11 hectares which makes them the biggest owner in the appellation. The Latour's Corton-Charlemagne vineyards are located on a prime section of the Corton hillside where the south-easterly aspect ensures maximum exposure to the sun. The fruit is harvested as late as possible to guarantee maximum ripeness.

Tasting Note
Our Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2013 shows a beautiful yellow colour. The aromas of peaches and toasted almonds perfectly combine with flavours of brioche and flint. Aromas of fresh almonds are present as well as a great roundness. Lovely length and liveliness. A beautiful and promising wine.
Food Pairing
