This Corton-Charlemagne is immediately distinguished and imperial. The attack is frank, direct and almost masculine. The mouthfeel is powerful, profound, filling and rich yet highly structured. It impresses with its density and its elegance. It is its long length that truly translates its Grand Cru character. The finish is persistent and saline. This wine demands patience and requires five to eight years to fully express itself.

Ripe stone fruits complemented by nutty nuances on the nose. Plush and fine-grained, with its stone fruit flavors currently overshadowed by nuts, earth and salty minerality. Rich and mouthfilling for young Corton-Charlemagne but I don't find quite the verve or grip shown by a barrel sample a year ago. Incidentally, the acidity here is 3.8 grams per liter, as with the Cailleret.
