The aromatic palette is marked by fresh almond, honey and vanilla hints. This white Burgundy wine carries an elegant and harmonious mineral aspect. The 2006 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru of Louis Latour is a worth-keeping wine, although it can be tasted already.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Latour's estate-bottled 2006 Corton Charlemagne displays lime peel, resin, and chalk dust in the nose; its sappy, pit- and citrus-fruit dominated palate resists the wine's 100% new wood well; and it finishes invigoratingly with an extended reprise of citrus, resin, and chalk. This should keep well for at least 6-8 years. Latour's very old vines in this site gave their last in 2004, but the average age of vines now is still a respectable 30 years. Admirable concentration and clarity characterize the somewhat firmer and more static 2005.
