    This has everything I look for in Corton Charlemagne. It has wonderful aromas of brioche and freshly buttered warm toast. In the palate there are hints of hazelnuts and Cornish clotted cream. Extremely mouth-filling, layered and really rather special.

  • Burghound, June 2018, Score: 92

    Javillier indicated that this had been bottled only one week before my visit and not surprisingly there was some unabsorbed sulfur on the mildly exotic mix of white peach, lychee and white flower scents. There is exceptionally good richness to the lavishly textured and generous broad-shouldered flavors that are quite powerful while delivering fine length on the saturating if slightly warm finish. This is a rather open knit example of the vineyard that is delicious though I wouldn't describe it as classic. Drink: 2023+

  • Stephen Tanzer, September 2017, Score: 89-92

    Bright, light yellow. Musky peach and flowers on the ripe nose, with a hint of menthol. Fat, sweet and slightly glyceral, with plush citrus and stone fruit flavors showing more varietal than vineyard character. This fruit bomb of a Corton-Charlemagne finishes with a touch of dusty stone and decent grip.

  • Jancis Robinson, January 2018, Score: 16.5++

    Tight and rich but even a little bitter. No great value compared to the best Meursaults from this family. Drink 2024-2034

Visits to Patrick Javillier’s cellars are always a delight. His enthusiasm and passion for his subject and in particular the wines of Meursault are second to none. Like all great winemakers he has his own views as to how wines should be made and the benefits of ageing both in cask and bottle and everything is thought out meticulously with this in mind. He makes wonderfully textbook wines, which for us are the most perfect reflection of the wines of Meursault. His wines have the natural exuberance that one expects from this the most exotic of the three famous white Côte de Beaune villages, whilst having a complexity of texture that only the very finest vineyards and producers ever seem to produce.Read less

Corton Charlemagne

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.
