Tasting Notes

The Corton-Charlemagne is quite ripe and expressive this year, offering up aromas of yellow orchard fruit, preserved citrus, pastry cream and toasted nuts. On the palate, the wine is ample, full-bodied and powerful, with some chalky grip on the finish, a generous core of rich, succulent fruit, and good concentration. This seems set to drink well shortly after release.

Cask sample. Tantalising aroma – so young but you can sense the potential. Deep, pure citrus, barely inflected by the creamy oak but given breadth and texture by it. Deep with richness that borders on just-ripe pear even though the lemon purity drives to the finish. It may well age longer but these days I am more cautious with white burgundy.
