Latour's terrific 1992 Corton-Charlemagne is a worthy rival to the firm's great 1990, 1989, and 1986. It is the most powerful, richest, and deepest wine in Latour's portfolio. There is plenty of smoky, toasty new oak, a forceful, earthy, peach, melon, orange, and buttery apple-scented nose, deep flavors that cut a bold, dramatic swath, and a long finish with crisp acidity. It should drink well for 10-15 years.
This is a wine that I've had many, many time since its release and finally it has begun to open and is now much more interesting than it used to be with a fresh and layered nose that still offers up a background touch of toast on the now fully mature aromas that lead to minerally middle weight flavors that culminate in a persistent and sappy finish. While certainly better than it used to be, 1992 will not go down as one of the great vintages for this storied wine.
Very seductive but also quite earthy now and difficult to assess. But we love the honeyed, ripe richness and racy, tight beam of hazelnut, toffee, vanilla and fruit flavors. There is a toasty, smoky and complex finish.
