Wine Description

With a golden yellow colour, the Corton-Charlemagne 2011 has a complex but intense nose. With notes of vanilla, mocha and nut, this wine is ample with a round structure. One discovers hints of almond pastes with a lovely mineral finish.

This Grand Cru wine has a citrus bouquet with a rich tropical fruit character. It is intensely powerful and fills the mouth with a multiplicity of flavours ending in a fine, steely finish which lingers on the palate for minutes. This wine needs 4 to 5 years to open up and can age for up to 20 years. An ample and powerful nose. The mouth offers a rich palet of aromas: fresh almond, honey and melted vanilla. The wine is very well-structured. It is already harmonious but be patient if you want to fully enjoy it: it needs a few more years to reach its peak and to fully express its complexity.

    (2014 Vintage) A broad, charming white, featuring lemon, baked apple, vanilla, clove and nutmeg flavors, with fine concentration and length. Shows a bright structure and chalky intensity on the slightly tannic finish.
