2011 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru
Louis Latour's 2011 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru displays an elegant golden hue. Intense, complex bouquet on the nose with mocha, vanilla, and hazelnut. Full, round, with subtle almond paste on the palate, and a long, mineral finish. Louis Latour's Burgundy will keep for several years.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The 2011 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru from Louis Latour has a much more austere bouquet than the 2011 from Domaine du Pavillon, although it is well defined and should open with bottle age. Light resinous notes develop with aeration accompanied by dried white flowers, then returning after ten minutes, there are suggestions of volatile aromas. The palate is crisp and taut with a fine thread of acidity. This is very harmonious and poised with good depth and real grace on the spice-tinged finish that demonstrates commendable persistence.
