Chardonnay from Burgundy, France

Points     |     BH: 91-94     |     ST: 92+
Cellar/Tasting Notes
One of the greatest wines of Burgundy, to be tasted with awe and reverence. It has an intense golden hue. On the nose, there are some subtle tones of rose, fresh almond, citrus, honey, exotic wood and spice. Majestic and well balanced on the palate. Generous and lively at the same time. Intense and complex aftertaste. All the aromas mingle and linger for quite a long time afterwards. A wine of undeniable majesty.
Burghound (BH): 91-94
"Discreet if not invisible wood highlights a ripe white flower and green fruit nose nuanced by spice and wet stone hints where the latter elements are also reflected by the intensely soil-driven flavors brimming with both salinity and minerality on the explosive and strikingly long, palate staining and overtly austere finish. This is a sublimely classic Corton-Charlemagne that offers formidable cellar potential."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 92+
Pale color. Captivating high-pitched aromas of ginger, mace, lavender, violet and stone. "At once sweet and backward, with a penetrating quality and terrific energy to its concentrated flavors of spices, flowers and saline minerality. Plenty of texture here, but this one stands out today for its tightly coiled spine."
