Domaine Louis Latour, Corton Clos du Roi (Burgundy, France) 2014

($95, Louis Latour USA): In addition to using some fruit from their holdings in Clos du Roi vineyard, Latour also bottles a wine made exclusively from grapes grown there.  Wines from Corton Clos du Roi often have a plushness and luxurious texture — showing it’s good to be the King — that make them especially attractive.  Latour’s 2014 Corton Clos du Roi displays that plush, luxurious quality and at this stage is a bit fleshier than the Grancey.  Impeccably balanced, it too should develop magnificently over the next decade.  While I’m sure Latour’s 2015 Cortons will be superb, don’t overlook this one and their Grancey from 2014.
