A broad-ranging nose offers up notes of matchstick, apple, lavender, wet stone and citrus rind. Not surprisingly there is more size and weight to the muscular and powerful big-bodied flavors that once again exhibit plenty of minerality on the very rich, complex and impressively long finish. This isn't a classic example but the complexity and balance are lovely and this should mature into an excellent wine.
Medium yellow. Very spicy but youthfully subdued on the nose. Plush, silky and concentrated, with its strong dry extract giving the wine an impression of solidity. Highly concentrated citrus and ginger flavors are complicated by a saline mineral element. Plenty of alcohol here yet this grand cru comes across as quite suave, with its fat leavened by firm, harmonious acidity. Finishes round and horizontal. (ST)
The 2015 Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru has a pleasant citrus, dried yellow flower, mango and basalt-scented bouquet that unfurls gradually in the glass. The palate is fresh and crisp on the entry, a more linear take on the vineyard with good tension, though I would have liked more terroir expression towards the finish. I think it will stretch its wings once in bottle. (NM)
