Winemaker Notes

The 2020 Corton Clos de la Vigne au Saint Grand Cru has an intense red ruby hue and offers a cherry and licorice nose. These aromas can also be found in the mouth, along with notes of nutmeg. This wine is full bodied and very delicate. The tannins are well integrated and the finish is long and softly oaky.

Critical Acclaim

James Suckling
Really deep nose of forest berries and violets. Then comes the very focused and amazingly velvety palate. The super-fine tannins and healthy acidity give this an extremely elegant profile, everything flowing effortlessly in the direction of nirvana.
WS 95
Wine Spectator
A suave style, this red delivers depth and complexity, with aromas and flavors of blackberry, black cherry, plum and earth framed by toasty oak. Silky yet dense, with well-integrated tannins. The finish evokes dark fruit, earth and mineral notes. Best from 2025 through 2045.

COMMENTARY: The 2020 Domaine Louis Latour Corton Clos de la Vigne au Saint Grand Cru is alluring and lasting on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine offers aromas and flavors of sweet spices, aromatic flowers, and ripe blackberries. Pair it with a grilled ribeye and Époisses. (Tasted: May 10, 2023, San Rafael, CA)
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2020 Corton Clos de la Vigne Au Saint Grand Cru bursts with aromas of cherries, dark berries, musk, spices and vine smoke. Full-bodied, ample and fleshy, it's rich and layered, with lively acids and a long, saline finish. This is the more sensual and suave of these two Corton bottlings.

Louis Latour Winery Video

Maison Louis Latour is one of the most highly-respected négociant-éléveurs in Burgundy. Maison Louis Latour is the producer of some of the finest Burgundian wines but has also pioneered the production of fine wines from outside of the confines of Burgundy. These wines from the Ardèche and the Côteaux de Verdon are slowly gaining esteem for their unmatchable quality outside of Burgundy.

All of the grapes from the vineyards owned by the Latour family are vinified and aged in the attractive cuverie of Chateau Corton Grancey in Aloxe-Corton. The winery was the first purpose-built cuverie in France and remains the oldest still-functioning. A unique railway system with elevators allows the entire wine-making process to be achieved by the use of gravity. This eliminates the threat of oxidation from unnecessary pumping of the must. Since 1985, Louis Latour has been selling the wines of its own vineyards under the name Domaine Louis Latour.

Louis Latour has been a leader in the environmentally responsible winemaking for over 15 years. Louis Latour has had ISO 14001 accreditation for Environmental Management Systems since 2003 and has been a member of the European association FARRE since 1998- a group of like-minded companies who seek to develop and promote sustainable methods of agriculture.

Aloxe-Corton Wine

Cote de Beaune, Burgundy

Prevailing over the charming village of Aloxe, the hill of Corton actually commands the entire appellation. Corton is the only Grand Cru for Pinot Noir in the entire Côte de Beaune. Its Grand Crus red wines can be described simply as “Corton” or Corton hyphenated with other names. These vineyards cover the southeast face of the hill of Corton where soils are rich in red chalk, clay and marl.

Dense and austere when young, the best Corton Pinot Noir will peak in complexity and flavor after about a decade, offering some of the best rewards in cellaring among Côte de Beaune reds. Pommard and Volnay offer similar potential.

The great whites of the village are made within Corton-Charlemagne, a cooler, narrow band of vineyards at the top of the hill that descends west towards the village of Pernand-Vergelesses. Here the thin and white stony soils produce Chardonnay of exceptional character, power and finesse. A minimum of five years in bottle is suggested but some can be amazing long after. Fully half of Aloxe-Corton is considered Grand Cru.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
