Tasting Notes

Pale, green-tinged color. Knockout nose offers lime blossom, crushed stone, quinine and menthol. Wonderfully silky and suave on entry, then large-scaled and fine-grained, with extraordinarily rich fruit and mineral flavors spreading out horizontally to dust every square millimeter of the palate. Perhaps most impressive today on the extremely long, tactile, slow-mounting finish, which shows more generosity of flavor than the "regular" Corton-Charlemagne but will nonetheless require patience.
