Burghound Author: Allen Meadows Issue: Issue 31

(the blend has now changed from exclusively Pernand vines to a mix of all 3 communes) An expressive nose of green apple and lightly spiced pear introduces round, minerally and moderately intense flavors that possess obvious minerality though here the finish is edgy to the point of being intrusive and while it may round out with time in bottle, at the moment the lemony acid bite is aggressive. My score offers the benefit of the doubt. On the plus side, there is excellent persistence.

International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 140

($152) Full yellow with a golden tinge. Exotic aromas of apricot, honey, vanilla and nutty oak, with suggestions of dried fruits. Big, round and rich; very ripe and thick for Corton-Charlemagne and a bit unrefined in comparison to Girardin's 2007 grand crus. But there's also excellent energy and lift and a very long finish.

Wine Advocate Author: David Schildknecht Issue: 180

Girardin has the luxury of fielding two bottlings of 2006 Corton Charlemagne. This first hails from lower-elevation parcels in all three communes that share this grand cru. Lemon, lime, and overt stone and chalk dominate the nose and palate here, and the sheer finishing refreshment of citrus helps ward off the hint of warmth and keep the mineral cast from rendering this impressively-concentrated wine too austere. Still, this will demand some patience, and should cellar well for at least 6-8 years.

Wine Spectator Author: Bruce Sanderson

Intense aromas of lemon verbena, mineral and spice are followed by lemon, peach and stone flavors. Young and racy, with fine intensity that builds on the palate. This has terrific energy, along with a dry, flinty feel on the finish. 350 cases imported.
