Louis Latour Corton Grand Cru 2014
- Pinot Noir
- Red Wine
The grapes selected to produce this wine are located on the hill of Corton in south-easterly facing parcels. The vines are managed in the traditional way by the Louis Latour team which carries out strict pruning in order to produce later harvests thus insuring a good degree of maturity in the grapes. This wine is made up of grapes selected from several different parcels of vines in order to guarantee consistent quality each year. It has a good ageing potential.
This wine has a pretty ruby colour and offers aromas of black fruits, notably cherries. It is harmonious, full smooth and long on the palate.
