94 point score by VINOUS Media

Pale, bright yellow. Subtle floral lift to the aromas of lemon, lime, menthol and chalky minerality. Dense, tactile, dry and deep, conveying a solid impression without any heaviness. Citrus peel, lavender and subtle nutmeg flavors show lovely mineral firmness and grip for the year. There's a soil-driven chewiness here that's as much Corton-Charlemagne as the vintage, but no hard edges. Finishes with sneaky rising length, pungent citrus fruits and crushed-rock minerality. Really leaves the taste buds quivering. This surprisingly smooth Corton-Charlemagne is built for a graceful evolution in bottle; I'd lay it down for. I raised my score by a point four days later when the wine was every bit as penetrating, minerally and palate-staining but had been joined by some ripe notes of white stone fruits.


94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound
Rich, full-bodied, concentrated and almost painfully intense flavors brim with both dry extract and evident minerality while delivering huge length on the youthfully austere finish that goes on and on. This muscular effort is terrific but be aware that this is definitely going to need time. *Don't miss!*
