Latour's signature wine is huge in 2003—certainly less subtle and less grand than the 2002, but still a great wine. It is rich, ripe and creamy, with toast and wood nuances. The power is dominant, but there is still the recognizable elegance of a fine Corton-Charlemagne. (RV)
Here too the nose has incorporated virtually all of the wood and offers elegant ripe and spicy green apple fruit aromas that complement the big, rich and very powerful flavors that are complex and massively long. Interestingly, the flavors seem almost heavy on the mid-palate yet there is good vibrancy to the finish that provides the necessary lift. This would merit a slightly higher score save for the noticeable finishing warmth.
Louis Latour’s 2003 Corton-Charlemagne (white) was harvested at 14% natural potential alcohol. It displays rich, smoky aromas of minerals, sage, and toast. Armed with excellent depth of fruit, this light to medium-bodied offering is packed with minerals and fresh herbs that linger in its extensive yet slightly warm (from alcohol) finish. Austere at present, and slightly tight, it will require some patience. (PR)
