Louis Latour Corton Charlemagne

Details

An ample and powerful nose. The mouth offers a rich palet of aromas: fresh almond, honey and melted vanilla. The wine is very well-structured. It is already harmonious but be patient if you want to fully enjoy it: it needs a few more years to reach its peak and to fully express its complexity Power, density, huge richness—all the attributes you would expect from a Corton-Charlemagne. But, this being 2006, the ripe tropical fruits are crispened with acidity which cuts through the impressive opulence and ripeness. A notably ripe but not exotic nose of green, yellow and citrus fruit complements reserved, intense, round and very primary big-bodied flavors that display obvious concentration and muscle on the dry but attractively textured and detailed finish. By the typical standards of this wine, '06 is a vintage that will drink well early as it's generous but focused. I personally would give it the better part of a decade but the mid-palate fat is such that it will be approachable earlier than usual. Latour’s estate-bottled 2006 Corton Charlemagne displays lime peel, resin, and chalk dust in the nose; its sappy, pit- and citrus-fruit dominated palate resists the wine’s 100% new wood well; and it finishes invigoratingly with an extended reprise of citrus, resin, and chalk. This should keep well for at least 6-8 years. Latour’s very old vines in this site gave their last in 2004, but the average age of vines now is still a respectable 30 years. Admirable concentration and clarity characterize the somewhat firmer and more static 2005. An open, rich white, with a core of peach and apple accented by honey and spice. Loose-knit and toasty on the long finish, which echoes the spice theme.
