Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, June 2019

This is a gorgeous example of Corton Charlemagne. The initial attack is of red grapefruit followed by a delicious richness and volume. A lightly spiced smoky character flows into hints of maple syrup and fresh walnuts giving a note of sweetness although very much a bone dry wine. Really long and lots of class. Lovely.

Region

Corton-Charlemagne, White Burgundy

As legend goes, Charlemagne, king of the Franks, ordered Chardonnay planted in the vineyard of Corton during his reign in the 8th century so as he would not stain his light-coloured beard during moments of great thirst. This may be mere romantic fallacy, but what cannot be denied is the exceptional quality of this Grand Cru appellation in Aloxe Corton in the Cote de Beaune.
