A Corton Red Wine with Exceptional Length
The Chateau Corton Grancey Grand Cru from Maison Louis Latour is a red wine from Pinot Noir grapes produced in the Corton appellation. The name "Grancey" comes from the last owners of the castle before the Latour family. The vines are on average 40-years-old and planted on a terroir made up of marl and limestone.
The 2015 Chateau Corton Grancey Grand Cru de la Maison Louis Latour offers great finesse with concentrated aromas, broad tannins and an exceptional length on the finish. Keep until 2025-2030.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Château Corton-Grancey Grand Cru is one of the Louis Latour portfolio's highlights this year, wafting from the glass with a lovely nose of plum, black raspberry, licorice and rose petal, framed by some nicely integrated smoky new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, supple and sappy, its ample chassis of fine-grained tannins cloaked in a deep core of vibrant fruit. While this may shut down in the near future, it's surprisingly accessible--albeit rather primary--right now. This emblematic cuvée is assembled from Latour's best barrels of Corton-Bressandes, Corton-Clos du Roi, Corton-Perrières and Corton-Grèves.
