"Once again reduction and sulfur mask the underlying fruit at present. Rich, full-bodied, concentrated and almost painfully intense flavors brim with both dry extract and evident minerality while delivering huge length on the youthfully austere finish that goes on and on. This muscular effort is terrific but be aware that this is definitely going to need time." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 71

"The 2016 Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru unfurls in the glass with a youthfully tight-knit bouquet of crisp green orchard fruit, lemon oil, smoke and beeswax. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, delicately textural and incisive, with tangy acids, good concentration at the core and a long, precise finish. With its racy profile, this is built for the cellar." William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Sweet spices, tangy acidity, and a wonderful peanut character on the palate. Still quite tightly wound, and certainly built to last long in bottle. Excellent purity of fruit – this needs time to show its true colours." Richard Hemming MW, JancisRobinson.com
