International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 128

($101; according to Girardin, all these '04s were racked without air at the end of August, 2005, then returned to used barrels with their lees until they were assembled in tank for three weeks prior to being bottled in March of 2006, fined but not filtered) Pale yellow. Aromas of mirabelle, nutmeg, candied ginger, and spicy, vanillin oak. Tight, taut and penetrating, with a powerful structure and very firm acidity suggesting that this grand cru will need at least five to seven years of aging. The '05 version is much easier and sweeter in comparison, but this is chewy, powerful and gripping, not to mention elegant. Finishes very long, with notes of mint and wet stone.

1. Full and rich. Lively and nerveux. Maybe Les Combettes is even better value? But it tastes of Corton-Charlemagne. Correct, rather than exciting, on the nose. Though there is very good depth of flavour. Very full and quite expressive. Slightly Marks & Spencer version.
