Louis Latour Aloxe Corton Premier Cru 'Les Chaillots' 2020

Product description

Aloxe-Corton is the home village of the Latour family who have been closely involved in the affairs of the commune for over three centuries. Of the total hectarage of this Premier Cru, Domaine Louis Latour controls over 90% of the production centred on the famous Château and cuverie of Corton-Grancey. These vines are an important part of Domaine Louis Latour. 

The name 'Les Chaillots' refers to the stony, pebbly nature of the soil in this vineyard, as 'caillou' means pebble in french. There is an alliance in the wines of Aloxe-Corton between the finesse of a Cote de Beaune and the mellow, powerful appeal of the Côte de Nuits.

The Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru 'Les Chaillots' has a deep ruby colour and offers aromas of cherry, licorice and walnuts. The mouthfeel is very delicate and fresh. The finish is rather long and well balanced.
