Burghound Author: Allen Meadows

I have not had this since cask and the bottle in question had a tattered label though no apparent seepage. As such, it's difficult to know whether this bottle was indeed representative as it seemed relatively supple and forward, indeed more or less ready to drink. To be sure, there was no obvious secondary nuances in evidence and still good freshness to the rich, intense and vibrant flavors brimming with minerality on the impressively long finish. Impeccably stored bottles might need another few years to arrive at their peak but absent this bottle being an aberration, I don't think that opening one today would be infanticide.

International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 128

($135) Pale, bright color. A quintessence of Corton-Charlemagne dirt on the nose: stone fruits, lemon, iodine, ginger, minerals and mint, all complicated by a musky, leesy note that reminded me of a Coche-Dury wine. Then compellingly dense and penetrating in the mouth, with captivating, soil-driven flavors of raw pineapple, white peach, white flowers and crushed rock; a sulfidey complexity and a saline element add to the wine's spectacular subtle complexity. Hardly a blockbuster but conveys an impression of great solidity. This remarkably precise wine coats the palate with dusty stone and leaves behind a suggestion of honey. My sample at Bouchard in early June was painfully young and closed though obviously outstanding, but this bottle, tasted in New York in August, was spectacular. (Incidentally, my following notes on the Chevalier-Montrachet, Chevalier-Montrachet La Cabotte and Montrachet were from bottles tasted at Bouchard-also quite backward at the time-and I would expect my scores to prove to be conservative.)

Very attractive nuttiness. Very try to the appellation, with real depth of flavour. Corton seems to have been well flavoured in 2004. Quite rich and already some evolution.

Wine Spectator Author: Bruce Sanderson

Tightly wound and minerally. Lean yet intense, with lemon, apple and oak spice flavors complementing the stone note. Builds nicely on the palate, fleshing out and then lingering, with an aftertaste of spice and mineral. 130 cases imported.
