DESCRIPTION

Claude Kolm 93-96

“Facing fully east. Yellow marl. Good acidity, tension, depth, steeliness; needs time, but should make an excellent Corton-Charlemagne in 8-10 years.” (December, 2018)

 

Jasper Morris 94

“Clear bright primrose, very striking nose, a touch of attractive straight-off-the-stones reduction, delicious tense fruit on the palate, very dynamic, a little bit of Mirabelle behind, maybe a hint of nectarine, so ripe but stops well short of anything blowsy. Leaves an excellent aftertaste, very successful.” (November, 2018)

 

James Suckling 94

“Super chalky with restrained notes of stones and minerals, as well as orange and clementine aromas and lightly spiced bread dough, in attractive mode. The palate has a smoothly layered and very approachable feel with a lot of plush, rich and ripe fruit, delivered in a channel of chalky freshness. Drink or hold.” (January, 2019)

 

Vinous (Neal Martin) 90-92

“The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru has an impressive bouquet that actually outshines the Montrachet, featuring yellow fruit, minerals and hints of white flower. The palate is well balanced with good body and rounded texture, displaying notes of orange peel and quince, and perhaps just missing a little delineation toward the finish. Fine.” (January, 2019)

 

Wine Advocate (William Kelley) 90-92

“The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru offers up notes of ripe lemon, blanched almonds, praline and white flowers. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy but structured, with a more overly ripe profile that's less integrated and cohesive than Bouchard's grands crus from Puligny. If it was just out of sorts when I tasted it, my score will seem conservative.” (January, 2019)
