Tasting Notes

The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru offers up notes of ripe lemon, blanched almonds, praline and white flowers. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy but structured, with a more overly ripe profile that's less integrated and cohesive than Bouchard's grands crus from Puligny. If it was just out of sorts when I tasted it, my score will seem conservative.

Score: 90 - 92

William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 04 January 2019

The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru has an impressive bouquet that actually outshines the Montrachet, featuring yellow fruit, minerals and hints of white flower. The palate is well balanced with good body and rounded texture, displaying notes of orange peel and quince, and perhaps just missing a little delineation toward the finish. Fine.

Score: 90 - 92
