Maison Louis Latour Chateau Corton Grancey Grand Cru 2016
"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 five areas of Domaine Latour Corton Grand Cru: Bressandes, Perrières, Grèves, Clos du Roi and Chaumes, the proportions of which vary depending on the vintage. The average age of the vines is over 40 years. After ageing individually, only the best barrels are assembled to create the Château Corton Grancey. It is a wine that is produced only if the grapes are of a perfect maturity, vintages judged inferior are systematically declassified.
Château Corton Grancey Grand Cru 2016 reveals a very nice deep garnet red colour. The nose is complex with aromas of strawberry and flowers. The wine is full-bodied and elegant with subtle hints of morello cherry and liquorice. Beautiful length in the mouth. Pair with wild boar - roasted beef - roasted quail - duck "à l'orange" and mature cheeses.
