94Wine Spectator

Exhibits a lovely bouquet of sweet fruit, with cherry decaying around the edges, along with autumn leaves and spice. Rich, concentrated, harmonious and mellowing, yet with structure and time to give.

93Stephen Tanzer

...scents of plum and leather....offers flavors of red berries, red cherry and salty minerality complicated by hints of leather and mocha. The big tannins are horizontal and well-distributed.

89-91The Wine Advocate

...scents of black fruits and tar could be detected. On the palate, this dense, medium-to-full-bodied, highly concentrated, and austere wine reluctantly revealed brambleberries, stones, and licorice.

It is a long, slender, stony limestone site that wraps part way around the top slopes of Montagne de Corton, a hill that reaches to 1,150 feet. The 234-acre vineyard primarily faces south, west and east, and is sheltered by a windbreak of trees while also receiving excellent exposure to sun. Corton is the Cote de Beaune’s only red Grand Cru. The largest producers are Louis Latour, with 37.5 acres; Hospices de Beaune, with 16 acres; and D'Ardhuy, with 11.85 acres. The names of smaller vineyards within Corton are frequently added to the names of Corton wines, resulting in names such as Corton Les Renardes, Corton Les Chaumes, Corton les Perrieres, etc.

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
