Pale, bright yellow. Reticent nose hints at lemon and baked bread. Rich, powerful and dry, with terrific depth to its lemon, white peach and stone flavors. A densely packed, broad Corton-Charlemagne with serious underlying structure. The classically dry finish saturates the palate with pineapple and crushed stone. Should be long-lived in the context of the year.

Wild, complex, full of natural yeasts somehow. Racked just before vintage 2010. Really fascinating cocktail of hedgerow ingredients on the nose. Still very youthful on the palate with more richness than wines in the southern Côte de Beaune. Really wild! Substantial. A big mouthful of red-wine-type weight. 15 different parcels go into this. A walk on the wild side, though he has not reduced his sulphur additions... Long and majestic but with a cidery flirtation.

The 2009 Corton-Charlemagne shows gorgeous balance and overall harmony. The overt, forward fruit is nicely buttressed by the wine's underlying minerality and crystalline purity. The 2009 is juicy and oily, but without being overwhelming. A clean, vibrant finish rounds things out nicely. The 2009 is shaping up to be a jewel of a wine. Anticipated maturity: 2011- 2019.
