About the Wine
Located on the hill of the Corton Grand Crus at an altitude of 273 meters in an old stone quarry, the 'Perrières' parcel of vines has a perfect south-easterly exposition. Our Cuverie Corton Grancey is embedded in this terroir. There are brown and red clay soils which produce a delicious and intense wine. The well-aged vines are managed in a traditional way by Domaine Louis LATOUR. Severe pruning allows a later harvest and ensures a good level of maturity and richness in the grapes.
Winemaker tasting notes: Of a deep ruby color, the Corton Grand Cru " Perrières" 2012 is complex and ample on the nose: red fruits combine perfectly with aromas of hazelnut and licorice. An elegant wine with silky tannins and a long finish.
10-12 months aging, 100% new French oak

A mix of fresh cherry and vegetal elements marks this dense version, with mineral and earth notes adding dimension. Though firm, this feels balanced, despite the youthful austerity. The sweet fruit echoes on the finish. Best from 2020 through 2033. 260 cases made. ~92WS
