The 1989 Corton-Charlemagne should age gracefully for at least 10-15 years. In the mouth, one can sense its huge, weighty, high extract style. The acids are high, and the length is formidable. Is it better than Latour's 1986, 1983, or 1979 Corton-Charlemagnes? It will be potentially longer-lived than the 1983, but it is hard for me to believe that it will ever eclipse the great 1986. Stylistically, it reminds me of the opulent, flamboyant 1979 Corton-Charlemagne. This is an outstanding white burgundy by any standard of measurement. Don't miss it!||Although unfairly maligned from time to time for his red wines, Louis Latour has always made some of the most explosively rich, long-lived white wines in Burgundy. That being said, I do not think I have ever tasted finer examples from Latour than the 1989 whites. Even the lower level wines, such as the Macon-Lugny and Macon-Chameroy, are loaded with fruit and have a luscious character, giving pleasure far beyond their reasonable prices. At the top level, the wines are huge, even massive examples of white burgundy that are phenomenally rich and intense. ||Various importers. Wine Advocate.February, 1992
