Author: Stephen Tanzer
Issue: Issue 170
(13.8% alcohol): Pale straw-yellow. Very reduced nose hints at very ripe stone fruits, ginger, smoke and petrol. Round, sweet and quite ripe but a bit warm, and not currently showing the lift or grip of classic Corton-Charlemagne. This wine is lower in acidity than the 2012 version and comes across as rather outsized. I was blown away by a barrel sample a year ago but today this bottle does not show the energy I found last spring.

This flight of 2011s comes to a close with the 2011 Corton-Charlemagne, a cool, introspective and powerful wine. Layers of bright citrus, mint and crushed rocks fill out the wine's big, broad-shouldered frame nicely. The intense, tight finish suggests the Corton-Charlemagne is going to require a measure of patience.
