Corton-charlemagne on Snooth

  • Can you tell us any more about your Burgundy white, Duncan? One of the more interesting bottles that's been posted here recently, since it breaks the usual mold. Chards from Burgundy can mature over that long a curve, or longer, if made well and stored properly. Corton-Charlemagne is known for being particularly long-lived and slower to mature. ... Read More

  • 1st go with Corton Charlemagne last night (IIRC). Boillot is one of the better negoiciants from what I understand, and 2011 is somewhat of an underwhelming vintage for red and white Burgundy.This wine came off showing very even, half closed, medium weight, and quite dry. Not much extract, and only medium complexity, can't say the finish was impr... Read More

  • 1961 Corton Charlemagne and more! When tasted back in November 2009, this wine showed brilliant freshness and zing. A Camembert cheese nose, but just so subtle, combined with hazelnut, truffle. While the 1990 tasted just before started to show pleasing toffee aspects, this wine over time showed off custard pie, white pepper like the 1990, but wi... Read More
