2006 Louis Latour Corton-Grancey 375ml

$49.99
2006 Louis Latour Corton-Grancey 375ml
A beautiful ex-cellar find from Louis Latour, the Corton-Grancey is considered their best bottling of Corton, and we have some very rare half bottles here from the 2006 vintage. Finding Grand Cru Red Burgundy bottles in this format is very sparse, especially ones with age, making this an incredible buy for the category.
The Corton-Grancey is named after the last owners of the Chateau that was situated on the Rue de Corton before Louis Latour Purchased it in 1891. One of the main reasons why this bottling of Corton is so good here is because it is a blend of five areas of Domaine Latour Corton Grand Cru: Bressandes, Perrières, Grèves, Clos du Roi, and Chaume. The vineyards are all about 40 years old, and the proportions of each vineyard vary depending on the vintage, allowing them to use the best plots for this bottling. After vinifying and aging individually, only the best barrels are assembled to create the Château Corton Grancey, and the rest is declassified, giving them strict control over the finished quality of the wine.
While the white wines were some of the best of the 2006 vintage in Burgundy, there were great examples to be found throughout the Cote d'Or. In the case of the reds, those that rigorously sorted their Pinot Noir faired very well with nicely structured and pretty wines that were energetic and aromatically beautiful. With age, they have put on weight and show more power and soil expression than off-release creating a beautiful interplay. The Corton-Grancey is a fine example of the vintage at a very friendly price and is in a great spot to enjoy now. It is easily one of the best half-bottle buys for Burgundy right now, and we have some of the only bottles in the world regardless of the format. This also has some nice recent CellarTracker Community notes with a score of 91.3.
