The expressive nose is now fully mature with notes of wet stone, soft white orchard fruit and green apple hints that introduce beautifully detailed and still impressively intense medium-bodied flavors that have mellowed considerably, all wrapped in a balanced, long and attractively vibrant finish that is tangy, clean and dry. I quite like the sense of refinement as this is at once classy and pure. While the '02 Corton-Charlemagne will certainly hold at this level for years to come, for my taste it has arrived at the front edge of its peak drinkability. Lovely juice.
Very pale color. Steely aromas of lime, apple blossom, crushed stone and mint; has the almost metallic minerality of a top Chablis grand cru. Then dense, penetrating and pure, with palate-saturating flavors of minerals and lemon ice. As young and minerally as this is, it's not especially austere or hard. Finishes smooth, extremely subtle and very long, with lemon and spice notes. My style of Burgundy, very Chablis-like in its penetrating, stony character. (ST) 94+
A wine that has the structure, freshness and green tannins of a 2002, but the richness of a 2003. There is a great mineral character to the flavors, which gives it a steely, piercing profile that suggests great aging potential. (RV)
Very clean and racy, evoking floral, herbal and mineral aromas and flavors. Dense and coiled like a steel spring, this needs time to open. I like the purity here, without much oak in the way of the terroir. (BS)
Quiet in style, with a lovely persistence of white limestone mineral character in the end, this is a gentle young Corton, showing subtle intimations of what may come with age. The fresh apple flavor of the fruit and brown-sugar tone of oak are still primary, but the minerality is clear. Give this at least 10 years to evolve.
Dense, lean, green notes on the nose. Vibrates and is very, very young. Still a baby and very, very opaque. Difficult to read. 18/20 points (JR)
