2002 Latour Louis, Corton Château Corton GranceyApr. 2010
I guess this must be Latour! Medium colour. Some warmth of red fruit, like the last a few herbs too. Some silk and plenty of power. Mineral flavours in the finish.
1989 Latour Louis, Corton Château Corton GranceyMar. 2004
Looks relatively pale as you pour the wine, but gives a surprisingly deep amber/brown in the glass. The nose seems to be of a much more ancient vintage than 89, but it’s sweet and a little meaty, still a little stewing, pruney fruit. The palate has depth, good acidity and still a little rasp on the (mostly) resolved tannins. It’s a perfectly mature and perfectly pleasant wine – not one to get overly excited over though.
1991 Latour Louis, Corton Château Corton GranceyFeb. 2003
Undergrowth and earth on the nose, perhaps a little animale too. The animale notes disappear to leave light toasty aromas and some fruit. Excellent acidity with still vigorous tannins. Quite long, this is a very good wine.
