Corton Grand Cru

Corton Grand Cru "Perrières" 2012

Located on the hill of the Corton Grand Crus at an altitude of 273 meters in an old stone quarry, the 'Perrières' parcel of vines has a perfect south-easterly exposition. Our Cuverie Corton Grancey is embedded in this terroir. There are brown and red clay soils which produce a delicious and intense wine. The well-aged vines are managed in a traditional way by Domaine Louis LATOUR. Severe pruning allows a later harvest and ensures a good level of maturity and richness in the grapes.

Tasting Notes
Our Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2013 shows a beautiful yellow colour. The aromas of peaches and toasted almonds perfectly combine with flavours of brioche and flint. Aromas of fresh almonds are present as well as a great roundness. Lovely length and liveliness. A beautiful and promising wine.
