Tasting Notes

This has attractive notes of wet chalk with bread dough and a swathe of ripe peaches. Nuances of citrus, too. The palate has great weight and depth with a very assertive, long and seamless drive. Classic Corton power here. Wow! Drink or hold.

James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, February 2019

Full vigourous bright lemon with just a touch of green. There is certainly some biscuit from the barrel here. 100% new wood, a little bit of custardy texture too, it is just at the back that the full stony feel shows up. Racy, yet ripe, this has the makings of a fine Corton Charlemagne.

Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy, December 2018

The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is performing well in bottle, mingling hints of citrus oil, green apple and pear with notes of warm bread and fresh pastry in a pretty bouquet. Medium to full-bodied, muscular and concentrated, this is a powerful but lively rendition of Latour's emblematic white. Drink 2020-2033.
