Louis Latour Corton Clos du Roi 2018
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote d'Or|
This red rides in on a blaze of pure cherry, raspberry and violet aromas and flavors. Gains depth, showing earth and mineral elements allied to a vibrant structure. Though the tannins are substantial, this should come around soon. Best from 2022 through 2037
The 2018 Corton Clos du Roi Grand Cru is showing well, offering up aromas of raspberries, spices, rose petals and rich soil tones. Medium to full-bodied, layered and enveloping, it's rich but lively, with velvety tannins and a generous core of fruit.
(90-92) A highly restrained and beautifully fresh array mainly features notes from the red side of the fruit spectrum along with background hints of wood, spice and earth. The mouth feel of the intense and focused medium weight flavors is finer with equally good minerality and detail, all wrapped in a balanced, firm and austere finale
