Wine Description

(From 2011 Vintage) "Grancey" was the name of the last owners of the chateau situated on the road of Corton, before the Latour family bought it in 1891. This wine, produced by Maison Louis Latour, is unique and exclusive. It is a blend of four areas of Domaine Latour Corton Grand Cru: Les Bressandes, Les Perrières, Les Grèves and Clos du Roi, the proportions of which vary depending on the vintage. The average age of the vines is over 40 years. After aging individually, only the best barrels are assembled to create the Château Corton Grancey. It is a wine that is produced only if the grapes are of a perfect maturity, vintages judged inferior are systematically declassified.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2009 Vintage) Beautiful red with ruby highlights. A complex nose revealing an earthy mix of red fruit, spice and liquorice. Rounded in the mouth with the same juicy flavors as on the nose rounded out with hints of coffee. Harmonious with supple tannins.
