98The Wine Advocate

The bouquet is imbued with spine-tingling mineralite and a shimmering tension that is impossible to encapsulate in words. It just leaves you with a huge smile on your face. The palate neatly interlocks with the aromatics, that mineral...

98+ Stephen Tanzer

Steely aromas of citrus peel, apple blossom, wet stone and nutmeg... Wonderfully sweet and rich, gaining breadth and texture as it mounts on the back half. As dense as this is, it's all about energy and verve today...

19+ Jancis Robinson

... Very rich, exotic nose - really dramatic. Very sweet - almost crème pâtissière. Certainly not juicy and the wine has lots of chew and substance... A bit of a sergeant-major of a wine. Firm with a very particular character.


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.
