Profile

Reveals a pale gold hue. Round and generous, its nose reveals aromas of grilled almonds and vanilla. It presents a beautiful amplitude in the mouth - exposing a melted woody and mineral finale. Very good persistence. Although very flattering in its youth, this wine deserves a few years in the cellar to reach its peak.

Paid with shellfish - lobster - foie gras - fish - mature cheeses.

Critic awards

A very cool and tight Corton Charlemagne with the intense spice, bold structure and steeliness that we expect from this appellation. Staggering concentration, which at this early stage makes the wine slightly austere, but all this gives it great aging potential. Fantastic integration of oak, fruit and mineral acidity at the amazing finish.

— 97 points, James Suckling

Louis Latour is the largest landowner of Charlemagne with 10.5 hectares, and all but a 0.5 hectare are together. This has lovely precision and lightness with pure green pear and honeydew melon accented by honey, vanilla bean and shortbread. The dense palate edges on hedonistic - in a good way, then the lively acidity and a thread of chalky minerality kick in to give the wine an easy drinkability.

— 96 points, Tim Aitken MW

An opulent white, powerful even, yet with a vibrant structure that keeps this focused and drives the seemingly endless finish. Featuring persistent floral, peach, melon and mineral flavors, this fades gracefully for more than a minute.

— 95 points, Wine Spectator

Cool and airy aromas flash notes of Granny Smith apples, citrus rind, mineral reduction and moderate wood influence. There is fine volume and plenty of vibrancy to the delicious middle weight flavors that are a bit more mineral-driven, though they don't possess nearly the same size and weight, while concluding in a bitter lemon-inflected finish where a touch of warmth slowly emerges.

— 94 points, Burghound

The 2020 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru reflects all the sunshine of the growing season. Full-bodied, rich and glossy, with a sweet core of fruit and broad shoulders, its bouquet evokes peaches, buttery pastry, golden orchard fruit, baking spices and vanilla pod. This will appeal to readers who gravitate toward richer, more extrovert styles of white Burgundy.

— 92 points, Robert Parker Wine Advocate
