Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru 2002
After the ravages of the phylloxera epidemic at the end of the 19th century the Latour family took the decision to tear up the dead Aligoté and Pinot Noir vines and to replace them with Chardonnay. Today the Latour family owns 11 hectares of this gem, which makes us the biggest owner in the appellation. The Corton-Charlemagne vineyard is located 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.
