The 1989 Corton-Charlemagne should age gracefully for at least 10-15 years. In the mouth, one can sense its huge, weighty, high extract style. The acids are high, and the length is formidable. Is it better than Latour's 1986, 1983, or 1979 Corton-Charlemagnes? It will be potentially longer-lived than the 1983, but it is hard for me to believe that it will ever eclipse the great 1986. Stylistically, it reminds me of the opulent, flamboyant 1979 Corton-Charlemagne. This is an outstanding white burgundy by any standard of measurement. Don't miss it! Although unfairly maligned from time to time for his red wines, Louis Latour has always made some of the most explosively rich, long-lived white wines in Burgundy. That being said, I do not think I have ever tasted finer examples from Latour than the 1989 whites. Even the lower level wines, such as the Macon-Lugny and Macon-Chameroy, are loaded with fruit and have a luscious character, giving pleasure far beyond their reasonable prices. At the top level, the wines are huge, even massive examples of white burgundy that are phenomenally rich and intense.
