Tasting Notes

There is enough wood to point out framing the ultra-floral green apple-suffused nose of pear, mineral reduction and soft spice nuances. Interestingly, there is more size, weight and density to the larger-scaled flavors that manage to retain the same refinement on the lingering finish where hints of grapefruit rind impart a sense of lift. This needs to add some depth but the underlying material appears to be present.

Score: 91/93Allen Meadows, (75), June 2019

The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru comes from the Le Charlemagne lieu-dit on the Aloxe-Corton side. Matured in around 60% new oak, it has a fresh Granny Smith apple, granite and smoke scented bouquet that you might mistake for a Puligny. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry, with a fine bead of acidity, yet somehow just a little conservative, pretty but not quite delivering that final coup de grâce on the finish. Maybe it’s keeping something up its sleeve?
