Ratings and Tasting Notes:
(JS=93) A beautiful and complex red with flowers, dark fruits, citrus, and spice character. Full body, firm tannins, and a bright finish. Tight and dense. Seamless and very pretty. A nice blend of different vineyards of Corton. Better in 2017.
(WS=92) There is density and intensity to this tight red, with cherry, strawberry, spice, and mineral flavors remaining persistent through the finish. Balanced and long, leaving a mouthwatering impression. Best from 2019 through 2032. 2,200 cases made.
(RP=90-92) The 2013 Chateau Corton Grancey Grand Cru possessed the most impressive nose of the Corton 13's from Louis Latour: blackberry, undergrowth, and candied orange peel, a convincing undertow of minerals. The palate is medium-bodied with gentle tannins, sappy black fruit, and a lightly peppered finish that linger in the mouth. Enjoy this over the next decade.
(AM=89-92) Here too very generous wood all but dominates the nose though aggressive swirling allows the earthy and Sauvage-inflected dark berry fruit aromas to be appreciated. There is an opulent mouth feel to the broad-shouldered flavors that possess better ripeness of the structural elements on the lingering finish. This is the best of these Corton Grands Crus
