Lime zest, apple, pear, a veritable mineral bat of this great terroir, iodine, white flowers and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and youthful, a very long, pure and gloriously focused finish.
Ratings : Wine Spectator 91/100, RVF 17/20
"Though restrained in aroma, this exhibits plenty of apple, lemon, petrol and floral flavors. Tight and racy, with a long, lingering finish. Clove and dried fruit notes grace the finish. » (Wine Spectator) A racy and subtle wine !"
Corton-Charlemagne is a grand cru appellation in the Côte de Beaune (part of the Côte-d'Or). The appellation was established in 1937, and on wine labels its name may be followed by that of the climat (vineyard site) where the wine was grown (for example: Le Charlemagne, En Charlemagne, Pougets, Corton et Languettes).
