RATINGS

97The Wine Advocate

... almost exotic... possesses stunning depth and a refined, kaleidoscopic finish that is remarkable...

97Vinous / IWC

The 2009 Corton-Charlemagne is fleshy and super-ripe to the point of being almost exotic. This is a hugely expressive young Corton-Charlemagne from Coche loaded with personality and sheer class...

96Burghound.com

... mildly exotic fruit aromas that combine with rose petal, citrus, wet stone and apple scents... a genuinely remarkable effort that should age gracefully for years.

19Jancis Robinson

Very rich and gorgeous. Broad and spicy, full and evolved. Long. Almonds and apples...Honey and vibration. Green herbs too. Very long.

94Stephen Tanzer

Crystallized citrus peel, green apple, ripe stone fruits and crushed rock on the nose. Atypically large-scaled and powerful for this bottling, with sweet, mouthcoating fruit nicely balanced by ripe acidity.

REGION

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.
