92Wine Spectator

A lean, lemony version, featuring bracing acidity that shapes the lemon, apple and baking spice flavors. Powerful and leaning toward the sharp side, with a tangy finish.

On the plus side there is also plenty of the hallmark minerality to the big, powerful and almost painfully intense broad-shouldered flavors that deliver superb length on an impeccably well-balanced, explosive and bone dry finish. The mouth feel is very much like rolling rocks around in your mouth and while this is presently very linear the underlying material is clearly here to allow this to flesh out with time in bottle. In sum this is a strikingly good CC that is very much built-to-age.


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Aloxe-Corton, Corton-Charlemagne

Corton-Charlemagne is a historic appellation for Grand Cru Chardonnay in the Cote de Beaune of Burgundy. The 129-acre vineyard falls within the boundaries of three communes, Aloxe-Corton, Pernand-Vergelesses and Ladoix-Serrigny. According to Burgundian historians, the vineyard is named for Charlemagne, the 8th century ruler who conquered most of western Europe. Charlemagne enjoyed the red wine of Corton, but as he grew older his wife disliked the red wine stains in his white beard, so Charlemagne had white grapes planted in Corton. Today only Chardonnay is allowed to be planted in Corton-Charlemagne, and it is one of Burgundy's most celebrated appellations for Grand Cru white wine. The largest land owners are Louis Latour, with 24 acres; Bonneau du Martray, with 23 acres; and Bouchard Pere et Fils, 9.5 acres.
