*Cellar Selection* This is one of Louis Latour’s flagship reds, a powerful wine, with its dense, solid fruits, big tannins and concentration. Those black plum juices are building up behind a firm layer of dryness. Wait until 2012 before even considering drinking. (RV)
A very subtle touch of wood frames a spicy red berry fruit nose that dissolves into rich, full, well-muscled and sweet flavors that possess a good deal more volume and while the mid-palate is supple and round, the finish has the firmness that one expects from a big Corton. There is much better balance here and this should age well.
A rich, sumptuous red, with a velvety texture and cherry compote and spice notes. It has a sweetness at its center, but lively acidity and firm tannins too. Good lingering finish. Approachable now, but will get better. Best from 2012 through 2028. (BS)
The Latour flagship 2005 Corton Chateau Corton Grancey offers both aromatically and on the palate a wealth of mineral characteristics: chalk, brine, wet stone and a distinctly alkaline overall cast. Expansive, black cherry fruit (as well as cherry pits) and underlying meatiness emerge more prominently in the finish. (DS)
