A restrained, indeed almost mute nose of Granny Smith apples and citrus aromas is in keeping with the rich and full-bodied but reserve flavors that possess very good size and weight, all wrapped in an intense, deep and sneaky long finish where noticeable wood surfaces. I like the concentration and this should be a rare Corton-Charlemagne that will be approachable in its youth. Tasted: Jun 11, 2013. Drink: 2018+



Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The 2011 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru from Louis Latour has a much more austere bouquet than the 2011 from Domaine du Pavillon, although it is well defined and should open with bottle age. Light resinous notes develop with aeration accompanied by dried white flowers, then returning after ten minutes, there are suggestions of volatile aromas. The palate is crisp and taut with a fine thread of acidity. This is very harmonious and poised with good depth and real grace on the spice-tinged finish that demonstrates commendable persistence. eRobertParker.com.November, 2014
