2018 Corton-Charlemagne Note:
60% from En Charlemagne and 40% from Le Charlemagne A cool, pure and elegant nose combines notes of various white fleshed fruit scents that in particular include Granny Smith apples and pear, along with hints of citrus and wet stone. There is excellent intensity as well as fine richness to the detailed and mineral-driven flavors where the minerality adds a sense of lift to the complex and sneaky long finale. This is lovely and should be approachable a bit sooner than its 2017 counterpart. Score: 92-94, Tasted: Jun 10, 2020, Drink: 2026+ Issue: 79 Burghound
