Louis Latour is a big name in Burgundy and this beauty from the Maconnais region is a perfect, high-value introduction to their delicious take on Chardonnay. Medium-bodied with a round, herbal fruitiness balancing the crisp acidity, this is a satisfying, seductive white worth leaving California to chase down.
With over 200 years of Burgundian history, there are few names that move the needle like Louis Latour. Family run since 1797, they have built a reputation for tradition and innovation that continues to set the gold standard today, striving to embed the specific conditions of terroir into each bottle they produce. Corton-Charlmagne is a vineyard where magic happens. Situated at the top of the hill of Corton, the limestone rich soil is the perfect home for these Chardonnay vines of legendary status, helping them express the true nature of their Burgundian roots in grand fashion. Simply put, it just doesn’t get much better than this.
A pretty white with dried apples, lemons and light hay and honey. It’s medium-to full-bodied with lovely fruit and a fresh, layered finish. Drink now.
