Description :

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.

Aging :

8 to 10 months in oak barrels, 100% new

Tasting Note :

Our Corton-Charlemagne 2017 has a beautiful pale yellow color and reveals a complexe nose of fresh almond, hazelnut and smoky hints. The mouth is powerful and persistent with yellow fruit and vanilla perfumes.
