High-pitched aromas of fresh peach, crushed stone, violet and lavender. Dense, sweet and rich, with very ripe pineapple fruit leavened by smoky minerality and given cut and focus by strong (4.5 g/l) acidity. Offers an uncanny combination of depth and high pitch for the vintage. The building, extremely long finish titillates the taste buds and leaves the mouth vibrating. Normally harvested on the late side, these vines were picked on September 5(!) in 2009, with potential alcohol of 12.9%. (ST)
The 2009 Corton-Charlemagne is the first grand cru in this vintage that is truly breathtaking. It shows off fabulous detail and nuance, with a crystalline expression of fruit, expressive floral notes and tons of minerality. The aromas and flavors flow effortlessly to a precise, chiseled finish that is stunning. This is a dazzling effort from Henri Boillot, and should not be missed. (AG)
