Tasting Notes

Located in the upper part of the Charlemagne. Pale lemon with a green tint. Immediately striking energy on the nose, stones plus, this is very fine. This has all the weight and concentration that you could want, not heavy at all, really striking. A properly long finish and does all it should.

Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy, October 2018

There is enough wood to point out framing the ultra-floral green apple-suffused nose of pear, mineral reduction and soft spice nuances. Interestingly, there is more size, weight and density to the larger-scaled flavors that manage to retain the same refinement on the lingering finish where hints of grapefruit rind impart a sense of lift. This needs to add some depth but the underlying material appears to be present.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (75), June 2019

The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru comes from the Le Charlemagne lieu-dit on the Aloxe-Corton side. Matured in around 60% new oak, it has a fresh Granny Smith apple, granite and smoke scented bouquet that you might mistake for a Puligny. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry, with a fine bead of acidity, yet somehow just a little conservative, pretty but not quite delivering that final coup de grâce on the finish. Maybe it’s keeping something up its sleeve?
