Louis Latour Corton Grancey Grand Cru 2002
"Grancey" was the name of the last owners of the chateau situated on the road of Corton
Grancey was the name of the last owners of the chateau situated on the road of Corton, before the Latour family bought it in 1891. This wine, produced by Maison Louis Latour, is unique and exclusive. It is a blend of four areas of Domaine Latour Corton Grand Cru: Bressandes, Perri?res, Gr?ves and Clos du Roi, the proportions of which vary depending on the vintage. The average age of the vines is over 40 years. After aging individually, only the best barrels are assembled to create the Ch?teau Corton Grancey. It is a wine that is produced only if the grapes are of a perfect maturity, vintages judged inferior are systematically declassified. - This Grand Cru has a lovely garnet colour and a distinct nose packed with aromas of leather, spiced fruit and oak. In the mouth this bold wine has balanced acidity and tannin and explodes with flavours of cherries, candied fruits and vanilla all complimented by leather and oak notes. An impressive and powerful wine which should be cellared.
