Tim Atkin MW - Decanter

Louis Latour dominate the appellation of Corton-Charlemagne, with 10ha under vine and lots of different aspects and altitudes to choose from in Aloxe-Corton. This has lovely floral scents that lead you into a palate that's rich, leesy and magisterial with notes of citrus, pear and banana bread, well-integrated new wood and a hint of stony reduction. Consistently the négociant's best white.

William Kelley - Wine Advocate

The 2018 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is showing well, mingling aromas of pear and mandarin with hints of clear honey, white flowers and warm bread. Medium to full-bodied, layered and muscular, it's lively but textural, with a bright spine of acidity and chalky back-end grip.

William Kelley - Wine Advocate

Aromas of pear, orange oil, white flowers and toasted bread introduce the 2018 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, a full-bodied, ample and round wine that's open-knit and gourmand. Demonstrative and giving, it's already accessible.
