Almost Gone! Louis Latour Corton 2015. Excellent Reviews, Nice Prices

 

Latour Corton 2015 Header
4 Grand Crus from the Great 2015 Vintage. All under $200 a bottle

Some years ago we imported a parcel of 1999 and 2002 Corton Reds from Louis Latour. They were a sellout success and I didn't manage to keep any for myself. However, over the last few months several friends have served the wines to me and I have been delighted at just how well they have aged. With fifteen or so years in the bottle they have softened and developed into surprisingly elegant wines of classical style. Simply delicious!

Today we offer a selection of four different 2015 Grand Cru Corton from Louis Latour. From the reviews I doubt that Latour has ever made a range of Corton this good. Latour have the usual favourites Clos du Roi and Perrieres plus Clos de la Vigne au Saint, a 2.46 hectare climat they share with Domaine Belland, and their special bottling Chateau Corton Grancey. This wine, named after the last owners of the Corton chateau before the Latour family purchased it in 1891, is a blend from the climats Les Bressandes, Les Perrieres, Les Greves and Clos du Roi. It is only produced in top vintages.
 
We offer all four wines at a Pre Arrival Discount of 25%. These highly rated Grand Crus are cheaper than many Premier Crus.

Corton Clos de la Vigne au Saint Grand Cru 2015
Landed Price $246.00
Pre Arrival Price $185.00
Latour Corton SaintWine Spectator: A concentrated core of pure cherry, raspberry and spice flavors highlights this intense red. Mineral and leafy tobacco elements add depth as this unfolds, while a firm, dusty matrix of tannins provides grip. Stays vibrant and long, with a terrific aftertaste of fruit, spice and mineral. Best from 2021 through 2040. 95 Points

Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report"
A wide, dark-fruited nose, complex dark fruits, almost gelée. Super in the mouth despite modest volume, but not modest intensity - waves of flavour, with a little tannin. A hint of licorice in the finish perhaps. This has great potential!

Corton Perrieres Grand Cru 2015
Landed Price $252.00
Pre Arrival Price $189.00

Latour Corton Perrieres
Wine Spectator: 
Bright cherry, black currant, blueberry and spice flavors ply this dense, juicy red. There is also a firm, tannic side that will need time to integrate. With air, more fruit emerges and the tannins are tamed somewhat. Offers a long, firm finish. Best from 2021 through 2038. 94 Points
James Suckling Tasting ReportThe ripe fruit is evident on the nose with complex cinnamon and nutmeg notes. Medium to full body and gorgeous depth of fruit that finishes soft and classy. Savory. Give it three to four years but already a joy to taste. 95 Points

Corton Clos du Roi Grand Cru 2015
Landed Price $252.00
Pre Arrival Price $189.00
Latour Corton Clos du Roi
Wine Spectator:  
This is ripe, with black cherry, plum and spice flavors and a fleshy texture, all backed by a solid structure. The flesh buffers the tannins up front, but they win out in the end. Long and well-proportioned, with a vibrant, fresh finish that evokes tobacco. Best from 2022 through 2038.
