Tasting Notes

The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is performing well from bottle, revealing scents of green orchard fruit, white flowers, fresh pastry and toasted almonds. Medium to full-bodied, textural and succulent, it's lively and precise, concluding with a delicately chalky finish.

Score: 93

Aromas of green apple, beeswax, lemon oil and white flowers introduce the 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, a medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated wine with succulent acids, an open-knit mid-palate and a long, stony finish. This bottling derives from a parcel in Corton Pougets that was formerly planted to Pinot Noir and part grafted over, part replanted in 2005.

Score: 91 - 93

This too is very firmly reduced and offers almost nothing discernible on the nose save for hints of wood and citrus. Like the Poruzots, there is fine volume and once again very good concentration to the broad-shouldered and imposingly-scaled flavors that possess a highly attractive mouth feel that continues onto the delicious, sappy and citrusy and overtly mineral-inflected finale. This compact and very serious effort is clearly going to require extended cellaring to reveal its full, and considerable, potential.

Score: 92 - 94

The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru comes from Les Pougets and matures in just under 30% new oak. This has a vivacious and tensile bouquet with orange zest and Japanese yuzu aromas that burst from the glass. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, quite taut for a Corton-Charlemagne but it is graced with impressive balance. The spicy finish is welcome. This is a finally crafted Grand Cru.

Score: 92 - 94
