Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru

2016

Magnificent terroir of white marls high on the hill-side and facing south. Very calcareous ground, with good drainage, allowing harvests at optimal maturity. From three tenths of a hectare of vines that average thirty-five and fifty-five years-old. The persistence on the palate is ridiculously long. It is one of the loveliest white wines of Burgundy which may be tasted young and which gains in complexity and richness as the years go by.

"More musky and exotic, the 2016 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru reveals notions of ripe peach, apricot, honeycomb and citrus blossom. On the palate, it's full-bodied, glossy and rich, with a thick, unctuous attack but juicy acids and refreshing phenolic grip on the back end."
