Tasting Notes

Robert Parker, November 2016

Tasted blind at the annual “Burgfest” tasting in Bouilland. The 2013 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru felt rather dilute on the nose -- perhaps picked too early? The palate is balanced but lacking real complexity and for want of a better word, the finish feels a little bland. I suspect this bottle had just gone awry and will seek to re-taste at a later date. Tasted May 2016.

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.
