Louis Latour Chateau Corton Grancey 2019
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote d'Or|
Bracing tannins frame red-cherry and fresh strawberry flavors in this ripe yet svelte, focused wine. Youthful red-fruit flavors are hedonistic already but this subtly spiced Pinot Noir is perfumed by hints of forest floor and wild herb that should gain depth with time. It's best to hold till 2024 at least. The wine should improve well through 2040.
A vibrant, expressive red, with cherry, strawberry, currant and earth flavors allied to a silky backdrop. Defined and harmonious, building to a long, complex and firm finish. Compact in the end, so be patient. Best from 2025 through 2042.
Notes of peonies, orange rind and sweet berry fruit introduce the 2019 Château Corton-Grancey Grand Cru, a medium to full-bodied wine that's chewier and more muscular than the Vigne Au Saint. It's a more serious wine, built for some bottle age.
