'Lots of substance and ambition. Worthy of the appellation.'
17.5/20 Points - Jancis Robinson

  • This Corton-Charlemagne is immediately distinguished and imperial. The attack is frank, direct and almost masculine. The mouthfeel is powerful, profound, filling and rich yet highly structured. It impresses with its density and its elegance. It is its long length that truly translates its Grand Cru character. The finish is persistent and saline. This wine demands patience and requires five to eight years to fully express itself.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    We harvested from the 27th of August through the 8th of September.

    For us, because we love whites with crispness, minerality and tension, we are confident to say the 2011 vintage is a great vintage for whites. The grapes were very healthy, and the pressing, settling and fermenting unfolded easily, thanks to the generous acidity levels.

    The qualities found in the reds are just as pertinents for the whites. Fresh, mineral and floral with notes of citrus and white flowers, the aromas are clean and precise. The palates are vibrant, with a nice combination of tension and fluidity that deliver a texture that is less thick and less fleshy give more profound flavour than the immediately preceding vintages.

    Thanks to this, it is easy to read the terroirs and because of the excellent natural equilibrium of the wines, the 2011 whites possess good ageing potential that is, in our opinion, superior to the three prior vintages. They are wines to drink but also to cellar for another ten years.

    Alc/vol - 12.5%
