93The Wine Advocate

...a fabulous nose of sweet vanillin, toasted oak and super-ripe fruits. The explosive palate bursts with tropical fruits...and is full-bodied, thick-textured and with excellent length.

92+ Stephen Tanzer

Quintessential Corton-Charlemagne nose combines peach, pear, pineapple, honey, coconut and vanilla. Honeyed and palate-staining; would be almost heavy were it not for the powerful acidity...has great aging potential...


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Pernand-Vergelesses, 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.
