Domaine Louis Latour, Corton Château Corton Grancey Grand Cru 1995

Louis Latour Corton Grancey 1995 #1

April 2014

Russet in pigmentation.  More resonant intimations of sea cave, toffee and peony than we remember.  Still the same fine-boned lines, at once sleek and serene: this is sweet without being sweet.  Corton Grancey, full of grace.  Now – 2020.

June 2013

A rust-infused garnet color, pinkish rim.  A capacious, sylvan nose: woodsy red berry and citrus fruit, gamebird, leafy spice and a humid, ferny underbrush.  Less bucolic on the palate, more kinetic and summery, of light to medium body: gently sauteed cherry, raspberry eau de vie, blood orange, pomegranate.  Gauzy textures, fine tannins, mineral bath finish.  A lacy Corton and in good form now; à point.  Now – 2017.
