TASTING NOTES

"Concentrated, with a solid structure keeping this sleek and long. Lemon, apple, vanilla and pastry spice notes ply the dense texture, buoyed by vivid acidity. Balanced, with a long aftertaste echoing the fruit and spice flavors, retaining a chalky feel. Best from 2021 through 2029. 175 cases imported." Wine Spectator

"Super chalky with restrained notes of stones and minerals, as well as orange and clementine aromas and lightly spiced bread dough, in attractive mode. The palate has a smoothly layered and very approachable feel with a lot of plush, rich and ripe fruit, delivered in a channel of chalky freshness. Drink or hold." JamesSuckling.com

"A cool and admirably pure nose displays notes of green apple, floral, citrus and a hint of wood toast. There is excellent volume, power and punch to the well-detailed and overtly stony broad-shouldered flavors that coat the palate on the impressively long finish that also reflects a bitter lemon nuance. While this is a classically styled CC, it remains relatively refined and should drink reasonably well after only 5 years or so of bottle age." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 75

"The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru surpasses its showing from barrel, revealing an attractive bouquet of ripe orchard fruit, citrus oil, spring flowers and pastry cream. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, elegantly glossy and precise, with a fleshy core of fruit that's tempered by brisk acids, concluding with a delicately chalky finish. While this is a little shut down after its recent bottling, this is a charming, expressive Corton-Charlemagne in the making." William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #242

"Moderately concentrated nose, fleshy palate with spice and apple fruit but I'm not sure you'd guess this as grand cru if tasted blind. There's ample concentration, true – perhaps this is a sleeper." JancisRobinson.com
