Burghound Issue: Issue 11

The purity of the nose is stunning with simply gorgeous and fine aromas of green apples, melon and a hint of apricot plus obvious minerality and there is a certain resemblance here to a great grand cru Chablis. The flavors offer a unique texture of opulence, finesse and an incredible stoniness that is focused like a laser beam. There is exceptionally good harmony here as the balance is impeccable. This is a stunner for terroir freaks as this is a reference standard example of classic Corton-Charlemagne. In short, this is class in a glass.

Tastes a bit leaner than the Meursault, and the magnum from which my glass was poured tasted very slightly oxidised. Lively and racy but without the density one expects from Grand Cru white burgundy. Other magnums may have been more impressive?

Wine Advocate Author: Pierre Rovani Issue: 146

Shame on me! I vastly under-rated this estate's 2000 Corton-Charlemagne in my barrel assessment a year ago (originally scored 88-90). The finest wine I've ever tasted from this famed domaine, it reveals a rich nose of ripe pears, buttered hazelnuts, and minerals. Medium-bodied, lush, intense, and satin-textured, it has exceptional balance, refinement, and a stupendously long finish. While it is not the most powerful Corton-Charlemagne, it has superb focus, detail, and seamlessness. Toast, spices, pears, and ripe apples can be found throughout its complex character. If this wine continues to improve in the bottle as it did in the final months of elevage, it will be completely mind-boggling.

Beautiful white Burgundy, incredibly ripe yet very pure and showing lovely mineral character. Some toasted oak, but mostly ripe pear, tropical and lime notes. Full-bodied, it sings on the palate to a long, long juicy and sweet finish. 3,200 cases made.
