Winemaker Notes

The Corton-Charlemagne 2017 has a beautiful pale yellow color and reveals a complex nose of fresh almond, hazelnut and smoky hints. The mouth is powerful and persistent with yellow fruit and vanilla perfumes.

Pair with shellfish, lobster, foie gras, fish, or mature cheeses.

JS 95
James Suckling
This has attractive notes of wet chalk with bread dough and a swathe of ripe peaches. Nuances of citrus, too. The palate has great weight and depth with a very assertive, long and seamless drive. Classic Corton power here. Wow! Drink or hold.
D 94
Decanter
Nobody owns more Corton-Charlemagne than Louis Latour, whose ten parcels are spread across 9.95ha in Ladoix and Pernand-Vergelesses. This is a textbook interpretation of the grand cru in a vintage which has produced some impressive wines across the appellation. It's spicy, plush and powerful, with some white pepper notes, vivid acidity and sweet, toasty oak. Drinking Window 2020 - 2025
BH 94
Burghound.com
Generous but not dominant wood sets off the cool yet ever-so-mildly exotic aromas of lychee, melon, freshly sliced green apple, floral and lemon rind. The larger-scaled flavors are succulent to the point of opulence thanks to the abundance of sappy dry extract that coats the palate on the powerful, stony and serious finale. This is very backward at present and will need at least a decade to reveal its full, and considerable, potential.

Wine Enthusiast
A subdued nose on this wine allows glimpses of lemon and chalk, holding a distant promise of gilded richness. The palate comes in with smooth precision, still harboring a flinty whiff of reduction but also hinting at creamy, rich depths of texture and flavor. A chalky well of lemony, cool freshness awaits at the core. This wine needs time to blossom, and promises chalky, bright, generous but precise richness. The finish offers a lovely note of butter.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is performing well in bottle, mingling hints of citrus oil, green apple and pear with notes of warm bread and fresh pastry in a pretty bouquet. Medium to full-bodied, muscular and concentrated, this is a powerful but lively rendition of Latour's emblematic white.

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.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
