Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 94-97

Aromatically, the powerful, dense, explosive 2002 Corton-Charlemagne offers spices, minerals, gravel and pears. Its awesome aromatics are followed by a muscular, intense personality of exceptional purity. Spices, earth, poached pears, apples, white peaches, and ginger can be found throughout this blockbuster's flavor profile, as well as in its super-impressive finish. Drink this elegant, muscle-bound gem between 2009 and 2019.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 96(+?)

($115) Knockout musky, soil-driven aromas of lime, chicken broth and crushed stone. At once dense and penetrating, with elegant but seriously intense flavors of lime, lemon, powdered stone and mint. Wonderfully light on its feet for a wine with this degree of power and thrust. Great building aftertaste shows superb density and cut. This should age like a red wine, and will be spectacular in 8 or 10 years.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 95

Refined, with a dense core of apple surrounded by pear and apple pie spice aromas and flavors. Bright and impeccably balanced, this is harmonious and well-defined, yet dense, and has not revealed all its charms. Fine length with a creamy texture.

Burghound | Rating: 93

(from Aloxe-Corton fruit) It's interesting but this is much more feminine and rounder in style than the Le Charlemagne with its distinctly masculine character. This is not as powerful but it's more elegant with precise, delineated and pure flavors that also enjoy ample amounts of dry extract and awe-inspiring length.

Obviously classy, sleek and fine. Obviously Corton-Charlemagne. Not bad value.

Tasted in 2008. Rich, viscous appearance, golden color. Nice dry extract on the nose. Good acidity with a touch of new wood. It's trying to come out, a little out of balance yet quite good. Elegance as well. Lots of tropical fruits yet not Batard-like.. It is a CC. Try next in 2010

Wine Varietal: Chardonnay

Arguably the best dry white wine grape out there, Chardonnay is grown all over the globe. In addition to being the backbone of fine white Burgundies, Chardonnay is also one of the three major grape varieties used in producing Champagne. Susceptible to a myriad of complications, Chardonnay berries are relatively small, thin-skinned, fragile, and oxidize easily. Chardonnay grapes can be sensitive to winemaking techniques and more difficult to handle from harvest to bottling than many other varieties. Some producers will use malolactic fermentation (where harsher malic acid is turned into softer lactic acid and carbon dioxide) to reduce crispness and acidity and add a creamy, buttery texture to wines. The "oaky" character of some Chardonnays comes from fermenting or aging which takes place in oak barrels. Once barrel-aged, Chardonnay may take on notes of vanilla or toast. While Chardonnay is produced worldwide, the best can be found in France, the United States, Argentina, Chile, Australia, Italy, New Zealand, and South Africa. Typical descriptors for Chardonnay include mineral, green apple, citrus, tropical fruits, vanilla, butter and smokiness.
