Aromas of lime zest, freshly baked bread, pear, white flowers and wet stones preface the 2021 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru (Domaine des Héritiers Jadot), a full-bodied, ample and satiny wine that's chalky and structured, with notable concentration, racy acids and a long, resonant finish. It's a very strong performance that transcends any of the vintage's limitations.
Fresh clear colour, with a sense of weight but more crystalline here as you would hope. A little lemony note alongside a waxiness, promising. Tight and long, as yet undemonstrative, but this may very well grow further from here. Drink from 2027-2035. Tasted: October 2022
A glossy but pale lemon colour in the glass. The nose has a unique character with brazil nut, mandarin oil and a good hit of savoury spice. The palate has a glossy, gourmand texture, showing more notes of mandarin together with hints of popcorn and fresh nuts. Intense, long and harmonious, it is a success this year and will be approachable when young.
