2010 Louis Latour Corton-Clos de la Vigne au Saint

$109.99
2010 Louis Latour Corton-Clos de la Vigne au Saint
The wines from Louis Latour have seen an increase in quality in the past decade, and when it comes to top vintages like 2010 and 2015, they are incredible buys. A Grand Cru from Corton, the Clos de la Vigne au Saint, isn't a wine that many will be familiar with, but it's a historical site and one of the oldest vineyards on record. Documentation of this vineyard was found dating to 1375, and while the Latour family didn't get acquainted until a few centuries later, in 1738, they still have owned a piece for almost 300 years. Located with perfect southerly exposure on the Corton hill lying on a bedrock outcrop towards the bottom of the slope, the soil here is a rusty red color and rich in marl, giving the wines distinct minerality. It is an elegant expression of Corton with a lovely showing of red fruit and minerals, and with the time in bottle, this is showing very well. 2010 was an excellent vintage for Burgundy, making this one of the best examples of this wine from Louis Latour, and when you consider the pricing for the 2010 grand cru these days, it's a great buy for the category. All bottles are ex-Domaine and in excellent condition.
