Corton-Charlemagne did particularly well in 2015 and the Jadot example is just one more confirmation of that success with its ripe but fresh and airy nose of green apple, citrus peel, floral and wet stone-scented nose. While the big-bodied flavors are not quite as imposingly-scaled as those of the Montrachet, this is by no means undersized and particularly so from a power and drive standpoint as the clean and attractively dry finish is almost painfully intense. Like the Monty, this is going to need at least a few years of bottle age and reward 10 to 15. In a word, excellent. Drink: 2027+
(picked around September 9, according to Barnier): Aromas of peach, nutmeg, smoke and flint, plus a light fusel quality. Very silky, intensely flavored wine with terrific mineral pungency and a serious spine of acidity to its penetrating flavors of lemon, apple and baking spices. Wonderfully tactile but without any impression of weight. Perhaps best today on the rising, scented finish, which offers a lovely balance of fruit, spice and mineral elements. This wine will need at least several years of cellaring before it approaches its apogee of enjoyment. (ST)
The 2015 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru has an attractive nose of orange rind, lemon zest and subtle star anise aromas that become accentuated in the glass. The palate is crisp on the entry with lemon zest and orange rind, quite reserved and austere towards the finish that shows presence but needs more energy and tension. It has potential, but let's see how it turns out in bottle and see if it gains more race. The wines under the "Héritiers des Louis Jadot" represent crus whereby the vines have historically belonged to the Jadot family. See also Maison Louis Jadot, Domaine Gagey etc.
