2011 Corton Grand Cru
The 2011 Chateau Corton Grancey Grand Cru shows a deep ruby colour. The nose exudes delicious cinnamon and liquorice scents. Round, full palate with red fruits and liquorice, silky tannins. Louis Latour's Corton Grand Cru is a blend of yields from four climats (vineyard with specific climate and soil): Bressandes, Perrières, Grèves, and Clos du Roi (blending proportions vary each year). It should be noted that the vines are over 40 years old on average, bringing all the soil and sub-soil character to the wines.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. Slightly paler in color than its peers, the Corton-Grancey Grand Cru '11 has quite a conservative bouquet with earthy tones, the stem addition becoming increasingly conspicuous as it opens up. The palate is medium-bodied with dry tannins and a slightly meaty finish with dried blood on the aftertaste. This never quite takes off as it threatens.
