Tasting Note:

This is a vivid, haunting Corton Charlemagne that dances and shimmers across the palate. The change in plot that took effect in 2016 has transformed this cuvee. While there are layers and layers of tightly packed, Grand Cru flavour here, there is great levity – a lesson in bigger doesn’t necessarily mean better and that finely wrought detail is a wonderful thing.
