Very pure reticent aromas of lemon lime and white flowers. Dry and penetrating to the point of painful with pristine flavors of crushed stone lime lemon and ripe but lightly bitter pomelo. Pure energy: this makes the Cabottes seem almost creamy by comparison. Finishes with intense crushed stone flavor and outstanding cut and lift. For the cellar. 95+

While not invisible here there is much less overt sulfur influence which allows the green fruit white flower stone and green apple aromas to shine. The textured intense and admirably pure flavors reflect perfectly the intense minerality of the appellation while finishing with a balanced persistent powerful and bone dry finale. As young Corton-Charlemagne can often be this evidences a borderline chewy quality as there is so much extract. While I would expect this to arrive at its apogee at around 10 years of age this is built to last for several decades. Once again if you're tempted to try this young do decant it for 30 to 60 minutes first.

This has the austerity and structure that bode well for a long development. The aftertaste of citrus and mineral lingers. Best from 2018 through 2032. – BS

There is indeed some saltiness in this wine. Racy. Very good Corton-Charlemagne. Racy and dense and juicy. Lots of energy here. Much livelier than many Corton-Charlemagnes. Impressive! Still chewy but with real energy.

Several of our panelists found this to be delicate and floral, while the wine struck me as soft, broad and generous, tightened up by zesty orange citrus notes. There’s a sweet hazelnut ganache flavor from the lees and oak, finishing with a hint of youthful tannins. Corton usually needs ten years of age to show its detail and this is structured to handle cellar time.
