The 1997's nose was rather unyielding on my visit to the firm's Chateau Grancey (in Aloxe-Corton) cellars. With aeration it revealed huge ripeness in its poached white fruit and hazelnut aromatics. On the palate it is broad creamy luscious and hedonistic. This medium-to-full-bodied Corton's flavor profile is composed of sweet pears candied/spiced apples sugar-coated nuts and hints of new oak. Moreover it possesses a long dense and flavorful finish. Projected maturity: 2000-2007. Louis Latour is represented by a different importer in each state.
