A hard-to-beat Corton-Charlemagne in 2017, this comes from cool, east-facing vineyards that ripen very slowly, even in a warm year. Focussed, pithy and fizzing with energy, it's a rich, dense wine with 40% new oak, creamy lees and a tangy, mouthwatering finish. Drinking Window 2020 - 2029. (TA)
Two out of the fifteen barrels of the 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru derive, for the first time, from white vines planted at the top of Faiveley's famous Clos des Cortons, and the ensuing wine is certainly superb, offering up notes of citrus zest, white flowers and crushed chalk. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, taut and strikingly incisive, with a deep core and a long, searingly mineral finish. This will be well worth seeking out. (WK)
The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru comes from a single parcel on the Ladoix side of the hill, the last parcel one faces toward the east. It has an attractive bouquet of lemon curd, yeast and orange peel that gains intensity with aeration. The palate is fresh on the entry, with touches of apricot and quince, a fine bead of acidity and good weight on the finish. This is a classy Corton-Charlemagne that should offer at least 12 to 15 years of drinking pleasure. (NM)
