(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.Author: Stephen Tanzer
