Intense fruit and toasty aromas blended with the mineral notes typical of this appellation. A rich, powerful wine with a strong personality. Very good ageing potential.
Wine Advocate 92 points - The 2012 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, comes from 2.4 hectares of vines located close to the top of the top of the hill, has a crisp, stony bouquet with apple blossom and lime flower, gently unfurling in the glass but needing a little more vigor. The palate is well-balanced with a slightly viscous opening, notes of tangerine and grapefruit, later a welcome twist of bitter lemon lending energy on the finish. Drink now-2028.”,,, (Feb 2014)
Wine Spectator 92 points - This sneaks up on you, starting with light butter and vanilla notes around the core of peach, grapefruit and spice flavors. Builds in intensity to a long, butterscotch-tinged finish. Creamy texture. Best from 2016 through 2027.—B.S. (Jul 23 2014)
