Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru 2003

Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru 2003

After the ravages of the phylloxera aphid at the end of the 19th century it was the Latour family that took the now-celebrated decision to tear up the dead Aligoté and Pinot Noir vines and to replace them with Chardonnay. The vineyard of Corton-Charlemagne is situated in the prime area of the hillside of Corton where its southeasterly aspect ensures maximum exposure to the sun. The fruit is harvested as late as possible to guarantee maximum ripeness.

Tasting Notes
Tasting Note From the slopes of the famed hill of Corton this Grand Cru is a very powerful wine showing a beautiful straw colour in the glass. It is rich and opulent with aromas of vanilla and woodspice swirling from the glass. This is big and fat with those vanilla and woodspice coming through in the mouth along with smoky flavours. A luxuriant wine with a beautiful future.
