Winemaker Notes

The Château Corton Grancey 2015 has a deep ruby red color. It has a complex bouquet of blackurrant and liquorice. In the mouth, it is round and ample displaying notes of black fruits, liquorice and chlorophyll with oaky notes. Beautiful lenght with freshness, almost saline.

Pairs well with wild boar, roasted beef, roasted quail, duck "à l'orange", mature cheeses.

James Suckling
Incredibly subtle and complex with dried herbs, spices, meat, leaves and dried fruit. Full-bodied, superfine and polished tannins and a fantastic finish. What a fantastic Grancey!
WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
This wine from the Corton Grand Cru vineyard is packed with tannins as well as smoky fruit. It is richly structured and firm, yet the fruit is equally powerful, showing bold black fruits struck against bright acidity. The wine will need considerable aging; drink from 2025.
Cellar Selection
WS 94
Wine Spectator
A rich style, sporting cherry, raspberry, spice and earth flavors. Moderate tannins lend support, while the flavors persist on the long finish. Though balanced overall, this tightens up at the end, suggesting that the best is yet to come. Best from 2021 through 2038.
BH 93
Burghound.com
There is plenty of the classic Corton sauvage character present on the intensely earthy, ripe and attractively fresh combination of various red berry fruit scents. The sleek, big-bodied and tautly muscular flavors possess excellent size, weight and concentration while exhibiting a moderate level of youthful austerity on the beautifully persistent finish. This is presently quite tightly wound and a wine that is going to need at least 8 to 10 years first and reward 15 to 20.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.

Louis Latour Winery Video

Maison Louis Latour is one of the most highly-respected négociant-éléveurs in Burgundy. Maison Louis Latour is the producer of some of the finest Burgundian wines but has also pioneered the production of fine wines from outside of the confines of Burgundy. These wines from the Ardèche and the Côteaux de Verdon are slowly gaining esteem for their unmatchable quality outside of Burgundy.

All of the grapes from the vineyards owned by the Latour family are vinified and aged in the attractive cuverie of Chateau Corton Grancey in Aloxe-Corton. The winery was the first purpose-built cuverie in France and remains the oldest still-functioning. A unique railway system with elevators allows the entire wine-making process to be achieved by the use of gravity. This eliminates the threat of oxidation from unnecessary pumping of the must. Since 1985, Louis Latour has been selling the wines of its own vineyards under the name Domaine Louis Latour.

Louis Latour has been a leader in the environmentally responsible winemaking for over 15 years. Louis Latour has had ISO 14001 accreditation for Environmental Management Systems since 2003 and has been a member of the European association FARRE since 1998- a group of like-minded companies who seek to develop and promote sustainable methods of agriculture.

Aloxe-Corton Wine

Cote de Beaune, Burgundy

Prevailing over the charming village of Aloxe, the hill of Corton actually commands the entire appellation. Corton is the only Grand Cru for Pinot Noir in the entire Côte de Beaune. Its Grand Crus red wines can be described simply as “Corton” or Corton hyphenated with other names. These vineyards cover the southeast face of the hill of Corton where soils are rich in red chalk, clay and marl.

Dense and austere when young, the best Corton Pinot Noir will peak in complexity and flavor after about a decade, offering some of the best rewards in cellaring among Côte de Beaune reds. Pommard and Volnay offer similar potential.

The great whites of the village are made within Corton-Charlemagne, a cooler, narrow band of vineyards at the top of the hill that descends west towards the village of Pernand-Vergelesses. Here the thin and white stony soils produce Chardonnay of exceptional character, power and finesse. A minimum of five years in bottle is suggested but some can be amazing long after. Fully half of Aloxe-Corton is considered Grand Cru.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
