**2019 Autumn Release**
An Iconic collection from around the Hill of Corton - Birthplace of Maison Louis Latour.
"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, Perrières, Grèves and Clos du Roi, 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.
