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.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


James Suckling - "So perfumed with exotic, tropical-fruit aromas that draw you into the glass. Full-bodied, layered and textured with soft creamy tannins and light stone and walnut undertones. Gun flint. Always a fantastic white. So constant."


Wine Enthusiast - "A flagship wine for this producer, this is rich and seductive, opulent even. Bold yellow fruits, ripe apples and pears are surrounded by a youthful texture that will allow it to age. The fruit and the touches of wood are still present, but will integrate beautfully. Cellar Selection"
