Wine Critic Reviews:

So perfumed with exotic, tropical-fruit aromas that draw you into the glass. Full-bodied, layered and textured with soft creamy tannins and light stone and walnut undertones. Gun flint. Always a fantastic white. So constant. Drink or hold.

James Suckling | 97 JS
A flagship wine for this producer, this is rich and seductive, opulent even. Bold yellow fruits, ripe apples and pears are surrounded by a youthful texture that will allow it to age. The fruit and the touches of wood are still present, but will integrate beautfully. Drink this wine from 2023.

Wine Enthusiast | 95 WE
Vanilla, clove and toast notes shade the core flavors of apple, melon and stone in this rangy white. Balanced in a broad-shouldered way, this offers echoes of mineral and spice on the long finish. Best from 2020 through 2033. 3,400 cases made.

Wine Spectator | 94 WS
As usual a gourmand, rich rendition of Corton-Charlemagne, with a nose of ripe Meyer lemon, candied lime, hazelnut and oak vanillin. This is followed by a thick, glossy palate with just a touch of acerbity on the finish detracting from the wine's precision. This is very much for those who appreciate big, bold, textural whites. Drinking Window 2018 - 2026

Decanter | 91 DEC
As with several of the, mostly unbottled, wines in the range, there is enough reduction to push the underlying fruit to the background. Otherwise there is solid power and punch to the medium weight plus flavors that are not as dense as one might expect given the vintage but the finishing balance and complexity are lovely. Note that this appears to possess very good upside development potential.

Sokolin 2015 Louis Latour Corton Charlemagne Tasting Notes:

Drinking a finely crafted, delicious Chardonnay can be an uplifting, enlightening experience. It feels like a conversation with the land itself, as well as with the hard-working, passionate souls who put their love into the wine. No one who tastes Louis Latour Corton Charlemagne leaves unsatisfied, and we're sure you'll be no exception.

It all starts with a single whiff, where the aromatic bouquet unfolds with the grace and poise of a playful ballerina. Notes of tropical fruits, fresh pears, and bold apples take center stage, followed by an encore of lush melon and crushed minerals. The more time you spend on the nose, the more diverse and colorful it becomes, and the perfume's refreshing lift never seems to fade. The scents are fragrant and intoxicating enough to send your mind soaring towards the cosmos, and that's before you've even tasted the wine!

On the palate, this full-bodied beauty surges forth, displaying layer after layer of deep, intense flavor. The tannins are soft and creamy, like a tasteful spoon of pudding after a meal. The textures are complex, meshing well with the intense aromatics on display. Traces of delicate vanilla and warm toast sneak into the mix over time, and the wine's lengthy, precise attack translates perfectly towards the finish. That finish is astonishingly long, generous and seductive, pulling you back in with elegance and ease.
