Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, December 2021

    This is a fascinating white wine coming from 2 plots, one in Corton Bessandes and the other in Corton Chaumes below Charlemagne, unusually planted with Chardonnay, due to a lack of Pinot at the nursery back in the 1970s and a star was born. A structured white wine, with pronounced yellow fruit flavours. Wonderfully textured on the palate, with a touch of Seville orange and great lift on the finish.

    Score: 92-94

    Two thirds Bressandes, one third Chaumes. More a light green tint here than yellow but the bouquet shows a little freshness and proper ripeness, along with its layer of Stockinger oak. Very fresh yellow fruit, fresh pears too, concise and chiselled, more of the ripe lemon zest, and very persistent.

Producer

Domaine Chandon de Briailles

The sibling team at this stunning domaine (Francois and Claude de Nicolay) is most definitely a winning one. Their biggest influence has been to convert the estate firstly to organic and now to biodynamic methods of viticulture and vinification. The wines focus on sensual flavours and refinement, these are not powerful, but the aged vines allow for wines of extraordinary texture and complexity.

Region

Corton

The Grands Crus of Corton, a red made from Pinot Noir, and Corton Charlemagne, a white made from Chardonnay are shared between Aloxe-Corton, Ladoix Serrigny and Pernand Vergelesses. The vines for both are planted on the hillsides underneath the plateau of Corton's woodland forest. The majorityof Pinot Noir is planted in the southern and eastern sector where the soil is naturally rich with red iron clay giving additional body and power. Overall, the wines from these areas tend to be fruit forward and fleshy with a balance of round edges and fine concentration.
