Our oenologists' opinion
Its light red brick color offers a bouquet nose with woody notes and black fruit. On the palate, this wine is balanced, frank, fine and nervous with a mineral edge and tasty tannins.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

The term “climate” is utilized in Burgundy to designate all the localities that benefit from unique geological and weather conditions.
Domain and appellation
Maison Louis Latour
Since the 17th century, the Latour family has produced wines. Founded in 1797, the Maison Louis Latour has a 48-hectare vineyard, including 27 located in Grand Cru, making up the Domaine Louis Latour, the largest domaine of Grands Crus in Burgundy. "Grancey" was the name of the last proprietors of the Chateau, located on the Route des Cortons, until the Latour family bought it back in 1891.
- Terroir: This wine is a blend of 5 Corton Grand Cru areas: Les Bressandes, Les Perrières, Les Grèves, Clos du Roi, and Chaumes, whose proportions may vary depending on the vintage.
- Viticulture: Harvesting is done manually.
- Vinification: Traditional vinification in open vats with malolactic fermentation occurring. The wines are then aged 10 to 12 months in oak barrels (35% new). After a separate maturation, only the best barrels are blended for the creation of the "Château Corton Grancey", which is only produced in the best years.
