TASTING NOTES

Serious and structured, mingling notes of pear and citrus oil with hints of toasted bread, white flowers and praline, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and chalky, with palpable structuring dry extract and tangy balancing acids.

William Kelley, Wine Advocate. Tasting date: January, 2021

Nuances of iodine, mineral reduction and oyster shell along with a variety of citrus influences. The sleek and almost painfully intense broad-shouldered flavors flash plenty of minerality on the dense, muscular and bone-dry finale. This youthfully austere effort has length to burn and it's not every day that you encounter a Corton-Charlemagne that can go head to head with a great Chevalier but this one can. 

Allen Meadows, Burghound.

The aromas begin with a distinct citrus note on the attack, but broaden on the palate with a nutty richness that is truly rewarding. The texture is luxurious, but the wine never loses its lovely freshness, which carries it through to a lingering finish. 

Decanter.

A delightful bouquet with well-defined scents of dried honey, hazelnut and crushed rock, quite Meursault-like in style. The palate is fresh on the entry with crisp acidity, not amazingly complex overall, yet I admire its tension and length, with quite a persistent spicy aftertaste. Very fine. 

Neil Martin, Vinous.
