Maison Louis Latour is one of the largest holders of vineyards in the region of Corton-Charlemagne, comprising 9.46 hectares of the total of just over 52 hectares. I have always been a great fan of Latour’s Corton-Charlemagne, especially the wines of the top vintages of the1980s. I have some bottles of 1989 in my cellar that are drinking beautifully now. They are still fresh and minerally with a creamy, vanilla and light tropical fruit character. I think the 2009 is very much in the same style as 1989. I love the 2009 Louis Latour Corton-Charlemagne’s almond and cooked apple character with hints of mineral and meringue. It’s full-bodied with a juicy fruit and cream flavors. Bright acidity too. It’s intense with mineral and spice undertones. Drink now or hold.
Powerful, concentrated and intense, this wine rolls around the mouth in its rich opulence. The ripest of sweet apricot and pear fruits join buttery toast just laced with acidity. (RV)
A discreet touch of wood sets off aromas of dried rose petal, lemon grass and green apple that precede rich, full and obviously well-muscled big-bodied flavors that possess an intense minerality on the powerful, driving and palate staining finish that delivers simply terrific persistence. This imposing effort is most impressive and should offer up to a decade of potential improvement
Candied apple and lemon flavors are highlighted by butter and grilled almond notes in this opulent white. Concentrated and creamy, with a hint of seashore that adds another dimension. The saturated finish echoes the butter and nut themes. (BS)
Louis Latour owns 9.65 ha of this! Some real zest to this on the nose. Rich, even ‘buttery’ in the style of old-fashioned Meursaults! Very rich palate entry and real weight. This is clearly Grand Cru quality. I can see this being lapped up in well-heeled banqueting rooms around the globe.
