"Cellar Selection"
A rich style, sporting cherry, raspberry, spice and earth flavors. Moderate tannins lend support, while the flavors persist on the long finish. Though balanced overall, this tightens up at the end, suggesting that the best is yet to come.

This wine from the Corton Grand Cru vineyard is packed with tannins as well as smoky fruit. It is richly structured and firm, yet the fruit is equally powerful, showing bold black fruits struck against bright acidity.

Burghound 93
There is plenty of the classic Corton sauvage character present on the intensely earthy, ripe and attractively fresh combination of various red berry fruit scents. The sleek, big-bodied and tautly muscular flavors possess excellent size, weight and concentration while exhibiting a moderate level of youthful austerity on the beautifully persistent finish. This is presently quite tightly wound and a wine that is going to need at least 8 to 10 years first and reward 15 to 20.

Wine Advocate 93
The 2015 Château Corton-Grancey Grand Cru is one of the Louis Latour portfolio's highlights this year, wafting from the glass with a lovely nose of plum, black raspberry, licorice and rose petal, framed by some nicely integrated smoky new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, supple and sappy, its ample chassis of fine-grained tannins cloaked in a deep core of vibrant fruit. While this may shut down in the near future, it's surprisingly accessible—albeit rather primary—right now. This emblematic cuvée is assembled from Latour's best barrels of Corton-Bressandes, Corton-Clos du Roi, Corton-Perrières and Corton-Grèves.
