2017 Domaine Louis Latour Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru

SKU #1458531 95 points James Suckling

 This has attractive notes of wet chalk with bread dough and a swathe of ripe peaches. Nuances of citrus, too. The palate has great weight and depth with a very assertive, long and seamless drive. Classic Corton power here. Wow! Drink or hold.  (1/2019)

94 points Decanter

 Nobody owns more Corton-Charlemagne than Louis Latour, whose ten parcels are spread across 9.95ha in Ladoix and Pernand-Vergelesses. This is a textbook interpretation of the grand cru in a vintage which has produced some impressive wines across the appellation. It's spicy, plush and powerful, with some white pepper notes, vivid acidity and sweet, toasty oak. Drinking Window 2020 - 2025. (TA)  (10/2018)

91-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 Generous but not dominant wood sets off the cool yet ever-so-mildly exotic aromas of lychee, melon, freshly sliced green apple, floral and lemon rind. The larger-scaled flavors are succulent to the point of opulence thanks to the abundance of sappy dry extract that coats the palate on the powerful, stony and serious finale. This is very backward at present and will need at least a decade to reveal its full, and considerable, potential.  (6/2019)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is performing well in bottle, mingling hints of citrus oil, green apple and pear with notes of warm bread and fresh pastry in a pretty bouquet. Medium to full-bodied, muscular and concentrated, this is a powerful but lively rendition of Latour's emblematic white. (WK)  (2/2020)

K&L Notes

92-95pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Blended and fined. Full vigorous bright lemon with just a touch of green. There is certainly some biscuit from the barrel here, 100% new wood, a little bit of a custardy texture too, it is just at the back that the full stony feel shows up. Racy yet ripe, this has the makings of a fine Corton-Charlemagne. Tasted: December 2018."
