A strikingly complex nose of dried rose petal green apple lemon peel and a distinct floral note complements perfectly the well muscled and powerful flavors brimming with dry extract and built on a base of solid minerality. This is a textured concentrated and mildly exotic example yet it remains precise pure and balanced if notably austere on the backend at present.

Drouhin's 2006 Corton-Charlemagne is from their own holdings in the south-facing Les Languettes high above Aloxe-Corton at the bend in the grand cru's horseshoe. Tangerine lime flowers and smoky toasty notes from barrel on the nose lead to a fine-gained clear juicy and appealingly forward palate underlain by ample deposits of the anticipated crushed stone or chalk dust. As generous as it is persistent it is hard to see this shutting down if also hard to imagine it being an especially long-keeping example of its site but it is youthfully ravishing and perhaps will make a fool of me a decade from now. -DS
