1996 Chateau Corton Grancey Grand Cru
This parcel of 1996 Grand Cru Corton is direct from Louis Latour’s cellars in Beaune, France. It has been stored there its entire life until shipping to us late last year. These bottles are in perfect condition, OWC 12 packs, and are drinking beautifully right now. We got a great deal on them to boot!
“Grancey” was the name of the last owners of the chateau situated on the road of Corton, before the Latour family bought it in 1891. This wine, produced by Maison Louis Latour, is unique and exclusive. It is a blend of four areas of Domaine Latour Corton Grand Cru: Bressandes, Perrières, Grèves and Clos du Roi, the proportions of which vary depending on the vintage. The average age of the vines is over 40 years. After aging individually, only the best barrels are assembled to create the Château Corton Grancey. It is a wine that is produced only if the grapes are of a perfect maturity, vintages judged inferior are systematically declassified.”
