Maison Louis Latour Corton Grand Cru "Perrières" 2016
Located on the hill of the Corton Grand Crus at an altitude of 273 meters in an old stone quarry, the 'Perrières' parcel of vines has a perfect south-easterly exposition. Our Cuverie Corton Grancey is embedded in this terroir. There are brown and red clay soils that produce delicious and intense wine. The well-aged vines are managed in a traditional way by Domaine Louis LATOUR. Severe pruning allows a later harvest and ensures a good level of maturity and richness in the grapes.
Corton Grand Cru Perrières 2016 shows a ruby red colour with garnet lights. Marrying both plum notes and hints of nutmeg and pepper, the nose reveals a great complexity. The mouth, ample and round, offers subtle aromas of cherry and liquorice. Lovely freshness on the finish with notes of chlorophyll.
