A good friend works for a company that distributes the wines of Louis Latour and he brought one of their wines over for dinner last night. The wine was a 2006 Louis Latour, Corton-Charlemagne, Grand Cru, which we drank while munching on white pie from the original Delorenzo’s Tomato Pies in Trenton (Hudson Street). My expectations were not very high for the wine based on my past experiences with various Latour bottlings, but this bottle was really nice. The wine lacked the strong minerality that I expect in a Corton-Charlemagne, but it was full bodied and rich. I would not call this a great a example of what a Corton-Charlemagne should taste like, but it was a very good wine.



This particular bottle namely 2006 Louis Latour, Corton-Charlemagne is a very good one. The manufacturers seemed to take good care of this particular production. Otherwise, I would not prefer Louis Latour.
