Young and racy with fine intensity that builds on the palate. This has terrific energy along with a dry flinty feel on the finish. Best from 2012 through 2022. 350 cases imported. –BS

Exotic aromas of apricot honey vanilla and nutty oak with suggestions of dried fruits. Big round and rich very ripe and thick for Corton-Charlemagne and a bit unrefined in comparison to Girardin's 2007 grand crus. But there's also excellent energy and lift and a very long finish.

This first hails from lower-elevation parcels in all three communes that share this grand cru. Lemon, lime, and overt stone and chalk dominate the nose and palate here, and the sheer finishing refreshment of citrus helps ward off the hint of warmth and keep the mineral cast from rendering this impressively-concentrated wine too austere. Still, this will demand some patience, and should cellar well for at least 6-8 years. - David Schildknecht
