Pale, bright yellow. Precise, vibrant nose combines ginger, medicinal herbs and fresh mint, with citrus fruits in the background. Offers a compelling combination of ripeness and energy, displaying great lift and penetration to the flavors of lemon, lime, crushed stone and minerals. Most impressive today on the rising, inexorable finish, which offers remarkable limey cut and clarity. Production here was a modest 35 hectoliters per hectare in 2012. "It's critical to control the yields in Corton-Charlemagne to make a wine of real grand cru quality," said winemaker Barnier. One of the superstars of the vintage. Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media

This is a little heavy on the smoky aromas and flavors right now. May want to give this a year or two of time.

Ett komplett vin. Rå styrka, välsvarvad kropp där precis allt sitter fast och kärleksfull "elevage" av en passionerad vinmakare.
