A myriad of spices and anise-spiked pears are found in the highly expressive nose of the 2001 Corton-Charlemagne. Medium to full-bodied with levels of dry extract that would tip the scales and a supple fleshy character of intense width and power this wine is amazing. Magnificently supple yet focused boisterous yet refined thick yet balanced it possesses a finish that easily lasts for over a minute. Moreover it has all the ear-marks of perfection. This velvety-textured wine is jam-packed with minerals immersed in pear syrup copious spices (including clove ginger and juniper berries) as well as a distinctive note of apple sauce. It is layered opulent and sexy while remaining nuanced and seamless. Wow! Anticipated maturity: 2005-2015. Bravo!
