*Top 100 of 2003, Highly Recommended* Beautiful white Burgundy, incredibly ripe yet very pure and showing lovely mineral character. Some toasted oak, but mostly ripe pear, tropical and lime notes. Full-bodied, it sings on the palate to a long, long juicy and sweet finish. (PM)
The finest wine I've ever tasted from this famed domaine, it reveals a rich nose of ripe pears, buttered hazelnuts, and minerals. Medium-bodied, lush, intense, and satin-textured, it has exceptional balance, refinement, and a stupendously long finish. While it is not the most powerful Corton-Charlemagne, it has superb focus, detail, and seamlessness. Toast, spices, pears, and ripe apples can be found throughout its complex character. If this wine continues to improve in the bottle as it did in the final months of elevage, it will be completely mind-boggling. (PR)
The purity this demonstrated when young is still present as the nose remaing stunning with simply gorgeous and fine aromas of green apples, white flower and a hint of stone plus the resemblance to a great grand cru Chablis is still very much in evidence. The medium-bodied flavors offer a unique texture of refinement, finesse and ample amounts of the hallmark minerality are focused like a laser beam. There is exceptionally good harmony here as the balance is impeccable and overall, this is a stunner for terroir freaks as this is a reference standard example of classic Corton-Charlemagne. While this is approachable now with pleasure, I would personally cellar this for another 2 to 3 years first.
