Burgundy And Beyond

Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru 2016

Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru 2016

After the ravages of the phylloxera epidemic at the end of the 19th century the Latour family took the then unusual decision to tear up the dead Aligoté and Pinot Noir vines and replace them with Chardonnay. This decision leads them to create one of Burgundy's most celebrated white whites. 

Today the Latour family owns 11 hectares which makes them the biggest owner in the appellation. The Latour's Corton-Charlemagne vineyards are located on a prime section of the Corton hillside where the south-easterly aspect ensures maximum exposure to the sun. The fruit is harvested as late as possible to guarantee maximum ripeness.

Burghound.com - 94/100 There is good power, size, weight and mid-palate concentration but there is also a better sense of detail and refinement compared to the Criots. This delicious effort is impressively scaled but not top heavy and I like the overall sense of balance. 2018+. By Allen Meadows (USA).
