From a parcel in Aloxe, the 2010 Quintessence de Corton-Charlemagne is quite a bit cooler and more reticent than the straight Corton-Charlemagne. White flowers, pears and crushed rocks are all woven together beautifully in this vibrant, deeply expressive Corton-Charlemagne. Ideally, the 2010 needs at least a couple of years for the fruit to emerge. Today, the incisive, crystalline mineral notes are most prominent. The silky, precise finish leaves a strong lasting impression. Anticipated maturity: 2014+. 93+

Reticent but very pure aromas of yellow peach, hazelnut and vanillin oak; comes across as riper than the utterly primary basic Corton-Charlemagne. Sweet and fine-grained, with a distinctly silky texture to the yellow fruit flavors. I find this less limey and minerally than the basic bottling, without quite that wine's tension. In fact, the finish shows a slightly exotic apricot quality and a bit of youthful warmth.
