Maison Louis Latour Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2018
After the ravages of the phylloxera epidemic at the end of the 19th century, the Latour family took the then unusual decision to tear up the dead Aligoté and Pinot Noir vines and replace them with Chardonnay. This decision leads them to create one of Burgundy's most celebrated white whites.
Bright in colour with pale golden glints, our 2018 Corton-Charlemagne reveals an intense nose of fresh hazelnut with hints of roasting, marzipan and vanilla. Full-on the palate, the vanilla aromas come along with notes of fresh almond, linden and some toasted notes. On the finish, aromas of citrus mingle with saline notes. A very beautiful length. Pair with shellfish, lobster, foie gras, fish and mature cheeses.

Aromas of pear, orange oil, white flowers and toasted bread introduce the 2018 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, a full-bodied, ample and round wine that's open-knit and gourmand. Demonstrative and giving, it's already accessible. William Kelley
