Château Corton Grancey Grand Cru 1996 Image

Château Corton Grancey Grand Cru 1996

"Grancey” was the name of the last owners of the chateau situated on the road of Corton, before the Latour family bought it in 1891. This wine, produced by Maison Louis Latour, is unique and exclusive. It is a blend of four areas of Domaine Latour Corton Grand Cru: Les Bressandes, Les Perrières, Les Grèves and Clos du Roi, the proportions of which vary depending on the vintage. The average age of the vines is over 40 years. After aging individually, only the best barrels are assembled to create the Château Corton Grancey. It is a wine that is produced only if the grapes are of a perfect maturity, vintages judged inferior are systematically declassified.

Tasting Notes
The Corton Grancey 2005 offers a rich bouquet of mineral notes (chalk, earth), spices and ripe fruit (black cherry). The wine is well-balanced, supple and round on the palate. The finish is long and firm which is typical of a great Corton. To drink between 2009-2015.
Ratings
Burghound.com, Allen Meadows - 93/100 A very subtle touch of wood frames a spicy red berry fruit nose that dissolves into rich, full, wellmuscled and sweet flavors that possess a good deal more volume and while the mid-palate is supple and round, the finish has the firmness that one expects from a big Corton. There is much better balance here and this should age well. By Allen Meadows (USA).
Awards
Decanter World Wine Awards 2009- October 2009- Silver Restained, but classy and ripe, sweet black cherry notes. Very elegant and opulent.
Food Pairing Notes
Duck "à l"orange", roasted beef, soft mature cheeses
