Wine Enthusiast Review
Rated 95
CELLAR SELECTION

There was less than half the normal production of this flagship white in 2013. However, the wine conveys the rich character that is associated with this powerful cuvee. It has density, ripe structure and a background of toast and honey. The wine needs to age for several years, drink from 2020.

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 Aligot and Pinot Noir vines and to replace them with Chardonnay. The vineyard 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. This Grand Cru wine has a citrus bouquet with a rich tropical fruit character. It is intensely powerful and fills the mouth with a multiplicity of flavors ending in a fine, steely finish which lingers on the palate for minutes. This wine needs 4 to 5 years to open up and can age for up to 20 years.
