Louis Latour Corton Clos de la Vigne au Saint 2020
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Beaune|
Lovely purity of fruit with crushed berries, dried lemons, mushrooms and cedar undertones. It’s full-bodied and layered with soft tannins. Savory and subtly fruity at the same time. Drink after 2022
This is big, lush and boasts black cherry, blackberry and plum fruit. Toasty, sweet spices add depth as does a mineral element that emerges as this winds down gracefully on the finish. Balanced and long, if lacking some nuance. Best from 2023 through 2040. 805 cases made, 125 cases imported.
The 2018 Corton Clos de la Vigne Au Saint Grand Cru opens in the glass with notes of cherries, cassis, sweet spices and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied, round and velvety, with lively acid and rich, powdery tannins, it's seamless and charming, much as I predicted from barrel.
