Tasting notes

<li> very limited availability – get on the list now for next year's supply <li> cellar for at least three years <br><br> Corton-Charlemagne is sometimes placed alongside Le Montrachet as the finest expression of white Burgundy. Its grandiose structure

Shows all the explosive quality of this excellent vintage, the new oak evident but not dominant, the fruit honeyed with earthy overtones and a very firm, minerally structure. It would be a shame to drink this wine before 3 years.
