The full-bodied Corton-Charlemagne displaying unbelievable depth to its spicy pear white peach and floral aromas is an awesomely rich as well as perfectly delineated and balanced wine. This oily-textured tour de force has an embracing almost enveloping flavor profile crammed with intense stones minerals super-ripe pears waves of nuts and minerals and touches of grilled toast. The taster's palate is held prisoner by the interminable layers and layers of concentrated highly-extracted and powerful fruit that roll across it each sublimely defined and focused by this wine's racy acidity. This show-stopper should reach its peak by 2003 and hold it through 2010.

Ripe but racy with a lush opulent and fat mouthfeel. Very attractive thanks to its richness this vibrates on the palate as it powers its way to a toasty ripe velvety finish that will need years to show it all. Best from 2006 through 2026. (PM)
