PRODUCT CODE: 12086362010
The 2011 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru comes from the estate’s own vines on the east-facing slopes toward the bottom of Les Languettes. It has an elegant bouquet with touches of beeswax, honeycomb and spice that are crisp and well-defined. The palate is medium-bodied with a smudge of lemongrass on the entry, a crisp line of acidity with fine tension on the finish. This is a respectable Corton-Charlemagne that just needs to come out of its shell. Drink 2015-2025+

Tasting note by Véronique Boss-Drouhin
"One of the greatest wines of Burgundy, to be tasted with awe and reverence. It has an intense golden hue. On the nose, there are some subtle tones of rose, fresh almond, citrus, honey, exotic wood and spice. Majestic and well balanced on the palate. Generous and lively at the same time. Intense and complex aftertaste. All the aromas mingle and linger for quite a long time afterwards. A wine of undeniable majesty".
