Winemaker Notes: With a bright and pale yellow color, Corton-Charlemagne 2015 displays a complex nose of almonds, vanilla and smoky notes. A full wine that is very powerful with almond flavors, honey and vanilla. Very beautiful length for this exceptional wine. Pair with shellfish, lobster, foie gras, fish, mature cheeses.

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.

Today the Latour family owns 11 hectares which makes them the biggest owner in the appellation. The Latour's Corton-Charlemagne vineyards are located on a prime section of the Corton hillside where the south-easterly aspect ensures maximum exposure to the sun. The fruit is harvested as late as possible to guarantee maximum ripeness.

Vinification & Ageing
Fermentation: Traditional in oak barrels with complete malolactic fermentation
Ageing: 8 to 10 months ageing in oak barrels, 100% new
Barrels: Louis Latour cooperage, French oak, medium toasted
