Louis Latour, Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, Burgundy, 2014

Drinking Window: 2024 – 2034
The light straw color and spiciness of youth bode well for this six-year-old wine. Minerals and pepper-like spice predominate while pineapple-like fruitiness lies in the background at this stage. The following night, more fruit elements emerge, while the riveting acidity keeps it fresh and full of energy. Its invigorating and lengthy finish amplifies all its elements. The wine’s stature comes as no surprise given the success of the vintage for whites.
