Louis Latour Corton Grancey Grand Cru 2003
"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 fabulous Grand Cru from the excellent 2003 vintage is a fine blend of the best Corton parcels from the Louis Latour Domaine. Delicious elegant Pinot of sublime purity with a variety of spicy and earth red and black fruit aromas. An altogether lovely wine that combines power and elegance.
