The 2008 Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru has a complex bouquet of fresh almonds and hints of oak. Impressive as it is in structure it also reveals mineral notes on the finish. The wine will certainly benefit from years of cellaring.
Burghound (BH): 92-94
"An upper register and highly complex nose of green apples, white pear and citrus notes introduces almost painfully intense, pure and impressively powerful big-bodied and overtly muscular flavors that possess an almost aggressive minerality on the palate staining, tension-filled and driving finish. This is really a striking wine that is built to age as there is an abundance of dry extract. Gorgeous."
