Situated at the bottom of the hill with a south east aspect, this wine always ripens well yet hangs onto its freshness. A delicious combination. The nose has a sense of alluring depth and darkness, hauntingly so, and is quite expansive with mineral notes shining through – ensuring the wine retains a moreish crunch of crispness. For something so muscular and big, the palate displays so much focus and direction. Incredible tension in this fabled Grand Cru! A touch of vanilla sweetness compliments the pure lime notes. There is a lovely slow releasing finish with some wonderful, cleansing salinity. This is brilliantly layered with hidden power yet to reveal itself at this stage. The finish on this Corton Charlemagne nearly lasted the whole day. Resonating and complex, this will reward for years to come.
