Aloxe-Corton has been the home of the Latour family and the heart of Domaine Louis Latour for centuries. Surrounding this famed village, the vineyards of Domaine Louis Latour yield a classic Aloxe-Corton. This wine has an inviting, warm red colour which leads to an earthy, spicy, tannic palate which mellows beautifully with age.
A medium cherry-red intensity, this village appellation has pronounced aromas of ripe red summer fruits, freshly crushed raspberries and red currents with subtle oak flavors.The palate reveals a supple yet firm tannic structure, balanced by generous fruit concentration, spice and black pepper and a long, elegant finish. A wine which expresses its typicity of origin.
"This beauty is very expressive of the vintage: elegant, silky and full of raspberry, locorice and spice flavors. Stays vibrant and firmly structured right through the sweet spice and mineral aftertaste." - B.S.
