1995 Domaine Louis Latour Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru

SKU #1496772 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Corton Charlemagne is Latour's flagship wine, as the Griotte Chambertin is to Claude Dugat and the Musigny Vieilles Vignes is to the Comte de Vogue. True to form, the 1995 is an outstanding effort. An extremely tight but super-ripe nose of sweet fruits is followed by a massive cascade of deep, sweet, intense, tropical fruits mixed with candied apples and red currants. This full-bodied, excellently structured wine has enormous depth and concentration, as well as a long finish (flavors of cassis, apples and a touch of lemon linger for 30 seconds or more). (PR) Inner quote mark (4/1997)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Intriguing. More terroir than openly fruity, it's quite earthy but also has lots of lively, crisp green apple and citrus flavors and a minty note. Medium-bodied. Needs time, try around 2005. Very distinctive; hard to place. Tastes more Burgundian than Californian, but doesn't show the lovely balance of many '95 white Burgundies, at least not now.--Chardonnay Challenge. 3,750 cases made.–PM Inner quote mark (11/1997)
