Louis Latour Corton-Perrieres 2019
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Beaune|
Seductive aromas of rose, blueberry and boysenberry highlight this well-defined, incisive red. It has latent power and builds to a long, expansive, mineral-tinged finish. Fine purity and structure. Best from 2024 through 2043. 180 cases made, 40 cases imported.
Dried strawberries with dried flowers and crushed stones on the nose. So enticing and fascinating. Full-bodied with a compact, tight palate of ripe yet cool and fine fruit. Complex finish of dried spice, such as nutmeg, together with fruit and light earth. A beauty already. Better after 2023.
The 2018 Corton-Perrières Grand Cru exhibits notes of cherries and raspberries, complemented by hints of sweet spices, dark chocolate and rose petals. Medium to full-bodied, layered and velvety, with an enveloping core of fruit and fine, chalky tannins, it has turned out nicely.
