Corton Charlemagne, Grand Cru, 2017

1 case
Equiv. £350.00 per bottle

Tasting Note:

A racy and tense Bonneau du Martray Corton with fresh notes of lime juice and salt crystals with some underlying nutty richness.

The blend comprises three equally-sized blocks: Haut Rollin at the top of the hill facing west in “En Charlemagne” where the soil is poor and the wine mineral; Grande Plante which is south-south-west facing mid slope in “Le Charlemagne”, this is the heart of the blend; and Les Latours which is the bottom of Le Charlemagne facing south which adds flesh and density. Aged in a third new oak.
