Maison Louis Latour is controvercial quality wise today – and the 1971 Chateau Corton Grancy sadly show some of the same characteristics of the current and recent vintages. It’s sweet and forward in the bouquet showing evidense of the quite warm conditions in 1971 – the fruit is however still alive and quite vibrant for the age – but lacking depth and detail. On the palate slightly diluted and lacking both depth and structure. It’s pleasing at best – but not offering much complexity and expression of the Corton terroir. On the positive note still quite fresh offering nice sweet fruit – sadly rather superficial.
