Louis Latour : Corton Grand cru "Clos du Roi" 2012

2012 Corton Clos du Roi, Burgundy.

The 2012 Corton Clos du Roi of Louis Latour comes from an exceptional appellation. Indeed, the king of France used to fill its cellars with the Corton wines; this is why this plot was called Clos du Roi. The 2012 Clos du Roi of Louis Latour was made from a Pinot Noir vineyard which is east orientated on the hill of Corton and traditionally maintained. The grapes are rich and fully ripe, and resulted in a beautiful ruby-red coloured wine. The 2012 Corton Clos du Roi carries a good aromatic complexity that combines elegance and subtle notes of wild strawberry. The palate is balanced with melted tannins and reveals a wine with a good ageing potential.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Corton Grand Cru Clos du Roi from Louis Latour has a tightly wound bouquet of cranberry and raspberry fruit, just a touch of dried orange peel, the oak nicely integrated but needing time to get into full swing. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit tinged with soy, spicy in the mouth and perhaps just missing some elegance towards the finish. It is a broad-shouldered Corton that may improve with a couple of years in bottle.
