Powerful, almost tannic in its muscle structure, this big white Burgundy delivers some deep butter, honey, ripe fruit and oak accents. Fills every tastebud on the palate with a velvety, thick, oil-like texture. The high, citrusy acidity keeps this together. Long, long finish. (PM)
Displaying a lively, rich, pear compote and mineral-laden nose, the Corton-Charlemagne soars with terrific richness, amazing focus, class and exquisite balance. This full-bodied, highly intricate, and oily-textured wine is filled with peaches, minerals and white flowers that seem to last forever in this gem's exceedingly long finish. Girardin's only white grand cru, it combines the depth of ripe fruit expected from a first-rate Corton-Charlemagne from a ripe year, with the precision and focus that is 1996's trademark. (PR)
Nuts, smoke, spices, flowers, and almost candied ripeness on the nose. Thick and sweet in the mouth, with a strong flavor of pineapple. Superb ripe acids give the wine excellent definition and intensify the flavors. Large-scaled but already filled in. Very long, powerful, nuanced back end. The strong acidity of the wine has already absorbed the new oak, says Girardin. (ST)
