Wine Advocate A myriad of spices and anise-spiked pears are found in the highly expressive nose of the 2001 Corton-Charlemagne. Medium to full-bodied, with levels of dry extract that would tip the scales, and a supple, fleshy character of intense width and power, this wine is amazing. Magnificently supple, yet focused, boisterous, yet refined, thick, yet balanced, it possesses a finish that easily lasts for over a minute. Moreover, it has all the ear-marks of perfection. This velvety-textured wine is jam-packed with minerals immersed in pear syrup, copious spices (including clove, ginger, and juniper berries), as well as a distinctive note of apple sauce. It is layered, opulent, and sexy, while remaining nuanced and seamless. Wow! Anticipated maturity: 2005-2015. Bravo!
