Item Description

Wine Spectator 95 Top 100 of 2021 Rank #6. Collectibles.
Outer quote mark Fresh and fruity, with aromas and flavors of lemon, pear, white flowers and stone, showing great tension and an underlying mineral component that gives this energy and length. The lemon theme continues on the lingering aftertaste, along with butter and pastry accents. With nearly 25 acres of estate vines in Burgundys Corton-Charlemagnealmost one-third of the appellationLouis Latour is an important producer of this grand cru Chardonnay, with its version being the one Americans are most likely to find in restaurants and at retail shops. The vines average 30 years of age. Harvested by hand, the grapes are pressed and fermented in 100% new French oak barrels. The wine ages eight to 10 months before racking, assembling and bottling. 2018 was a ripe vintage; the timing of the harvest was crucial to strike the right balance. Latours Corton-Charlemagne shows great tension and an underlying mineral component that lends energy and length. (BS) (7/2021)

James Suckling 97
Open and aromatic with honeysuckle flowers, dried apples and mangoes, as well as white peaches and stone. Full-bodied, this grows slowly on the palate with an intense, powerful finish. Lots of cream, cooked apples, lemons and light oak at the very end. Tight and right. (8/2020)

Wine Advocate 90-93
The 2018 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is showing well, mingling aromas of pear and mandarin with hints of clear honey, white flowers and warm bread. Medium to full-bodied, layered and muscular, it's lively but textural, with a bright spine of acidity and chalky back-end grip.
by WK, 2020.

Decanter 93
Despite the heat of the vintage and serious ripeness (14.5% alcohol), this is surprisingly elegant and nuanced. There is a pleasant lemony accent to the ripe tropical flavours coloured with hints of cream, butter, and spice. On the palate, the wine dense but not lacking in freshness. Pleasant now, this will age well. (CC) (3/2021)

Burghound 91-93
Here the beautifully layered nose is at once riper and more complex but also more restrained with its reasonably fresh aromas of apple, spear, spice, herbal tea and soft oak wisps. There is outstanding volume to the equally ripe and powerful flavors that exhibit a lovely underlying tension on the impressively persistent and attractively stony finish where the only nit is hint of warmth -Allen Meadows.
