Love the depth of fruit and intensity of this wine. It has dark fruit and floral undertones, as well as meat, which is very captivating. Full body, purity of fruit and nice, powerful tannins. Chewy and powerful. Focused austerity. A wine for the cellar. Try in 2022. ... More details

The Corton Grancey is the pinnacle of Latour’s Corton range this year, opening with a complex bouquet of black fruit, forest floor, orange zest and a framing of cedary new oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, with a chassis of chalky tannins, underpinned by fresh, tense acids, and revealing excellent concentration and depth. Drinking Window 2025 - 2045.

The 2016 Château Corton-Grancey Grand Cru is showing very well from bottle, unfurling in the glass with a youthfully tight-knit bouquet of plums, cassis, subtle spices and incipient hints of forest floor. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with tangy acids, fine but firm structuring tannins and a long, expansive finish. Attractively complete and built for the cellar, this will reward bottle age.

Rated 93 by Wine Spectator
A dense, chunky style, packed with cherry, strawberry, currant, earth and tobacco flavors, all backed by beefy tannins. All the elements are in the right proportions, but this will take some time to unpack. Best from 2023 through 2042. 950 cases made, 270 cases imported.

Rated 93 by Burghound
Moderate reduction and wood toast make for a very pungent nose. Otherwise there is excellent volume to the relatively refined mouth feel thanks to the dense but fine tannins shaping the youthfully austere, complex and impressively persistent finish. This will clearly need at least some bottle age as it's very firm at present.

green grapes

Varietal: Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir grapes have been cultivated in and around the Burgundy region of France for centuries, where they have long been favored by vintners for their wide range of flavors, their thin skins and for producing wines which have light, smooth tannins, and a beautiful garnet red color Whilst they remain one of the flagship varietals of this special region, their wide popularity and recent status as a fashionable 'romantic' varietal has led to them being planted in almost every wine producing country in the world. However, the Pinot Noir demands a huge amount of care and attention from the wineries that wish to grow it, as this varietal is particularly susceptible to various forms of mildew and rot. Despite this, the grape is otherwise a favorite with wineries for the fact that it requires little extra effort once it begins fermentation. Pinot Noir is also widely known for producing some of the world's most famous sparkling wines, being one of two key grapes for the production of Champagne, and several other sparkling varieties.

Region: Burgundy

The wines which come out of the Burgundy region of France are regularly hailed as amongst the finest in the world, with the area now being synonymous with quality red wines of exceptional flavor, character and aroma. However, Burgundy is no newcomer to the world of fine wines, with the earliest recordings of the quality of this region's produce dating back to the 6th century, and archaeological evidence suggesting that vineyards had been cultivated there for over two thousand years. Today, there are dozens of controlled appellations within Burgundy, each producing exceptional wines typical of the region. The whole area benefits greatly from hot summers and mild, long autumnal periods, which, when coupled with the generations of expertise of the wineries in Burgundy, consistently produces superb wines for the world's enjoyment.

Despite the rise in quality of wines from neighboring European countries, not to mention the New World, the French wine industry continues to boom, with up to eight billion bottles being produced in recent years. However, France prides itself on always putting quality before quantity, and the wide range in fine produce is a testament to the dedication and knowledge of the wineries across the country. Indeed, from rich and complex reds to light and aromatic white wines, French wines are as varied and interesting as they are enjoyable to drink, making this country a firm favorite for wine lovers across the globe.
