2009 Louis Jadot Domaine des Heritiers Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru
Wine Advocate | Rating: 96Another vibrant, precise wine from this often misunderstood vintage, the 2009 Corton-Charlemagne boasts stunning precision and class from start to finish. Citrus, pears, white flowers and crushed rocks are some of the many nuances that vibrate on the bright, crystalline finish. In this tasting, the 2009 Corton tastes like it has barely budged over the last year. It is far too young to even consider opening. Anticipated maturity: 2015+.Author: Robert Parker
International Wine Cellar | Rating: 95Good pale color. Subdued but pure high-pitched aromas of lemon, wild herbs, nutmeg, lavender, violet and white pepper, with a strong steely quality contributing to the impression of lift. The palate offers extraordinary definition and verve for the vintage, showing superb acid cut to the flavors of lemon, crushed rock and menthol. The tactile aftertaste saturates the palate with citrus peel and wet stone. This should be long-lived.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: September/October 2011
