Tasting Notes

This has already begun to change aromatically since my last review of it as the 2015 vintage character is more apparent with its very ripe white orchard fruit, floral, smoke and mildly phenolic scents. The broad-shouldered flavors are ultra-rich with so much dry extract that the mid-palate is borderline creamy and opulent while the mildly warm finish just goes on and on. This is imposingly powerful and massively constituted and should age for years. With that said, I find this lavishly opulent effort to be somewhat less refined and stylish than usual and would compare it to the 2009. Note: from a .88 ha parcel in Le Charlemagne

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (79), June 2020

(13.7% alcohol): Pale yellow. Profound aromas of lemon, lime and crushed rock. Ineffably silky on entry, then tightly coiled and pungently mineral in the middle palate, conveying an impression of great density without weight. No sign of hot-vintage character here! The endless crushed-rock finish conveys a powerful sense of solidity and the structure of a red wine. Raphael Coche likes this best among his 2015s for its balance but will probably hold it back for a much later release. He noted that the family's 2010 Corton-Charlemagne will be released in September, adding that the 2015 version is totally different in style but close in quality. 2024 - 2035
