It is the last white to be picked. Always very healthy, especially since some of the wood above has been cut back. Just racked. Fine pure lemon colour. This is very elegant, with a delicious purity, more suave than stony but the minerals are lurking. Absolutely white fruit, very stylish.

There is a creaminess to the texture in this white, whose profile borders on broad and muscular. Apple, lemon and stone flavors hold center court, while elements of spice and mineral lurk on the lingering finish.

Fermented in 20% new wood, it's still a pretty rich Grand Cru white, with breadth, texture and a drizzle of honey, but there's also plenty of balancing acidity, sap and minerality. Appealing stuff.

This is very open, across a broad palate that shows ripe apples, pineapple and light tropical fruit. Hints of cream. Full-bodied, flavorful and delicious now. Will improve with age, but why wait? Drink or hold.

It has an attractive if not quite an exciting bouquet of beeswax and jasmine notes. The palate is livelier, demonstrating good tension. Quintessentially Corton-Charlemagne in texture, with a resinous, sappy finish that gets the saliva flowing. Drink over the next two decades. -- Neal Martin

Medium to full-bodied, deep and nicely concentrated, it's muscular and structured, with racy acids and fine reserves of dry extract. This should age with class.- WK
