What a sensual nose of Amalfi lemon, ripe mirabelle and apricot this Corton-Charlemagne has! Gigantic fruit and almost as much structure behind it, the fine tannins underlining all this beautifully. Mouthwateringly fresh acidity and a saline touch that really ignites this at the very long, brilliant finish. From the south side of the hill of Corton. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.

An elegant and exceptionally pretty nose combines plenty of floral elements with those of Granny Smith apples, mineral reduction, freshly squeezed citrus and an admirably subtle hint of oak. The succulent, concentrated and, unusually for a young Corton-Charlemagne, seductive big-bodied flavors exude an evident stoniness on the palate staining, citrusy, bone-dry and hugely long finish that really fans out as it sits in the mouth. I very much like the balance and this beauty should also age effortlessly. Burghound Sweet Spot!

Allen Meadows, Burghound.

Broad and muscular, unfurling in the glass with aromas of lime cordial, orange zest, white flowers and pastry cream. Full-bodied, rich and textural, it's a thick, fleshy wine with terrific concentration and tangy balancing acids. The 2020 vintage has turned out beautifully at this address, In 2021, Jadot entered into organic conversion for their domaine vineyards.

William Kelley, Wine Advocate.

A lifted, liquorice-tinged bouquet that opens beautifully in the glass. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity that cuts through the crisp citrus fruit laced with orange pith, stem ginger and white pepper. There is real cohesion and persistence on the finish - just an excellent Corton-Charlemagne.

Neal Martin, Vinous.

Pale lemon yellow. The bouquet is quite quiet though with promise. This is classic on the palate, rippling stones dusted lightly in lemon. The oak in support is well judged. Perfect acidity to finish – it is there but ripe not trenchant. Fine and quite nuanced finish with some floral notes. 

Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy.
