Tasting Notes

A classic and beautifully layered nose consists of citrus peel, green apple, floral and spice scents. The rich, powerful and beautifully delineated big-bodied flavors exhibit almost painful intensity as there is a plenitude of mouth coating extract that buffers the very firm acid spine that allows all of this size and weight to remain exquisitely well-balanced on the chiseled and moderately austere finish. This is going to require, and generously reward, extended cellaring.

Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting, Jadot's 2014 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru has a light brioche-scented nose that lacks some complexity at first, but aeration sees more mineralité developing. The palate improves in the glass eventually; after ten minutes, it demonstrates fine weight in the mouth. It boasts a slightly honeyed texture with a touch of nutmeg on the finish. Very fine. Drink Date 2018 - 2028

This is presently sufficiently reduced that it is impossible to fairly assess. The rich, powerful and beautifully delineated big-bodied flavors exhibit almost painful intensity as there is a plenitude of mouth coating extract that buffers the very firm acid spine that allows all of this size and weight to remain exquisitely well-balanced on the chiseled and moderately austere finish. This is not quite as complex or persistent as the Montrachet but it's not far off and note well that this too is going to require extended cellaring.
