Cellar/Tasting Notes
Corton-Charlemagne is the only vineyard in Burgundy bearing the name of two emperors: "Corton" comes from the Gallo-Roman Curtis d'Othon, meaning the Domaine of Othon, a German emperor. It gave the word Courthon, which became Corton. Famous emperor Charlemagne (Carolus Magnus) was, according to legend, the owner of the vineyard.

A wine of undeniable majesty, it is generous and well balanced on the palate. The aromas of rose, almonds, cistrus and wood mingle well and linger on to enhance the sensation experienced the palate.
Burghound (BH): 91-93
" A restrained, cool and airy nose offers up notes of green apple, floral and wet stone scents. There is plenty of size, weight and intensity to the beautifully well-detailed flavors that display an overt muscularity before terminating in a balanced, long and impressively powerful finish that delivers outstanding length. A classic example."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 93
"Yellow-straw color. Flamboyant aromas of nectarine, peach pit, nutmeg, sesame and toasty oak, all lifted by a floral nuance. Rich, silky and mouthfilling, combining an almost glyceral texture with bright acidity and lively spiciness. Very fine-grained stone fruit flavors are complicated by a leesy quality. Finishes seamless, round and long. Suave elevage here."
