Consistent notes. A pretty light golden color; lovely perfumed nose of tropical fruit, spice & minerals; on the palate, caramel, tropical fruit; minerally & racy; broad, full-flavored & concentrated with ample oak yet nicely austere; rich, intense & well-balanced; long, complex, slightly hot (alcoholic) finish; clearly Grand Cru quality, drinking well now but should continue to do so for a couple more years. An excellent Corton Charlemagne drinking perfectly now.

Light, caramel comes to mind with a cherry back end. The party goers liked it much. Go Westrey.

Well balanced lively white Burgundy. Watermelon, cantaloupe, flowers, and a bit of lemon on the nose. Soft on the midpalate with mango. Nice long finish. Love it!

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
