Tasting Notes

**Note: from a .67 ha parcel from Le Charlemagne in Aloxe-Corton**
This is aromatically all but mute and it required very aggressive swirling to gradually coax the grudgingly nose of wood, mineral reduction, petrol, green apple, white rose and spice elements to reveal themselves. In the same vein as the nose, the dense and well-muscled broad-shouldered flavors are very, very tightly wound while delivering an abundance of minerality on the massively persistent finish. This potentially ranks as the wine of the vintage and that is no small statement given just how good the best 2014 whites are. With all of those justifiably merited compliments though, note well that this masterpiece in the making will not only age effortlessly for years to come, it's going to need time and I wouldn't even think about touching a bottle for at least a decade. In a word, brilliant.
