“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: LesBressandes, Les Perrières, Les 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.
The soil in the vineyards of Aloxe-Corton is of marl and limestone.
The average age of the vines are 40 years with an average yield of 35 hl/ha. Harvested by hand.
A pale ruby colour and much fruitiness and roundness characterize this powerful and well-structured wine. This elegant grand cru is very much typical of the Pinot Noir.
