Single Bottle - Magnum - 1.5 Liters
A rich style, sporting cherry, raspberry, spice and earth flavors. Moderate tannins lend support, while the flavors persist on the long finish. Though balanced overall, this tightens up at the end, suggesting that the best is yet to come. Best from 2021 through 2038. 1,800 cases made.
The 2015 Château Corton-Grancey Grand Cru is one of the Louis Latour portfolio's highlights this year, wafting from the glass with a lovely nose of plum, black raspberry, licorice and rose petal, framed by some nicely integrated smoky new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, supple and sappy, its ample chassis of fine-grained tannins cloaked in a deep core of vibrant fruit. While this may shut down in the near future, it's surprisingly accessible—albeit rather primary—right now. This emblematic cuvée is assembled from Latour's best barrels of Corton-Bressandes, Corton-Clos du Roi, Corton-Perrières and Corton-Grèves.
