Louis Latour : Corton-Charlemagne Grand cru 2020

A complex and fine Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru white wine

The estate

Founded in 1797, Domaine Louis Latour is currently run by the family’s 11th generation and is headed by Louis-Fabrice Latour. As a wine merchant and grower, Louis Latour owns the largest estate of Grands Crus in Burgundy.

The vineyard

Comprising a 10.5-hectare vineyard, the Louis Latour family owns most of this Grand Cru. At the end of the 19th century, the Latour family decided to uproot the Aligoté and Pinot Noir vines on this terroir, which had been devastated by Phylloxera, and replace them with Chardonnay vines. Louis Latour's Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2020 stems from an exceptional terroir that enjoys a south-east exposure and plenty of sunshine. This fine Corton-Charlemagne wine is renowned for its balance and rich aromas.

Vinification and ageing

Once the grapes have been harvested by hand, a traditional fermentation process is carried out in oak barrels, along with a 100% malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged for 8 to 10 months in French oak barrels (100% new oak) from the cooperage of Louis Latour.

The blend

Chardonnay (100%).
