A pungent and well-layered nose exhibits notes of apple skin, citrus zest, white flower and a wisp of wet stone. There is fine vibrancy and very impressive richness to the generously proportioned, dense and sappy broad-shouldered flavors that deliver good if not truly special persistence on the citrusy finale. I wouldn't describe this as classically styled but rather as a seductive and forward C-C.
Very ripe apricot nose, which has a toasty edge despite the absence of new oak. Rich, generous and creamy on the rounded palate, but there is ample underling acidity to give tension and precision. Sleek, lightly phenolic, and very long. Drinking Window 2017 - 2028.(SB)
The 2015 Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru has a powerful but well-defined bouquet with scents of wild honey, praline and citrus fruit, gaining intensity in the glass but never losing its delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp citrus fruit, nectarine and grapefruit notes, the acidity nicely judged, though the finish just needs to develop a little more persistence and depth. Otherwise, this is a fine Corton-Charlemagne that should age well over the next decade.(NM)
