The nose of the 2011 Corton Charlemagne reveals woody, fruity and floral notes and will be even more complex with a few years of patience. This wine is concentrated, with fine balance and very long-lasting flavors on the palate.
For its generous aromas, we can already start to enjoy this Grand Cru, but it will reach its full potential and reveal all its character after a few years in the cellar.
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 93-96
"Soil-driven aromas of apple, mint, anise and menthol, with complicating notes of fresh herbs and white pepper. Dense, saline and seamless; at once very dry and chewy. Conveys a rare impression of glyceral texture without much alcohol (this was actually 12.5% potential alcohol chaptalized to 12.8%). Wonderfully perfumed on the bracing finish, with is dusty with extract. Not at all a fruity style of white Burgundy. But this should make for an utterly compelling wine."
