Louis Latour Aloxe-Corton, Premier Cru Les Chaillots
Maison Louis Latour presented a dense and creamy 2011 Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru Les Chaillots. Latour’s family hometown for over three centuries, Aloxe-Corton, is also home to their famous Chateau de Corton-Grancey and vat house. The name Les Chaillots refers to the vineyard pebble-filled soil. The 2011 Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru Les Chaillots displays a shimmering, garnet-tinted, ruby red colour. The nose bears intense Morello cherry and liquorice fragrances. The wine offers a lovely acidity with well blended, round tannins, and a finish refined by a touch of liquorice.
