No fat or flab here - this 2009 is mineral driven, from the aromatic nose to the bright, focused flavors. The nose delivers a tang of minerality, fleshed out with rich orchard fruits. The flavors are energized with a stream of acidity that brightens the rich yellow and green fruits, further heightened by a crush of minerality. Youthfully exuberant and alive with promise. The future will shine on this 2009. https://www.burgundywinecompany.com/index.php?main_page=wine_info&cPath=1_86&products_id=493&zenid=q3r430tvq2fbqtknceetrrpnn3

De la Moriniere is always at pains to caution that his white "shuts down" for several years soon after bottling, but in that case I must have tasted his 2007 Corton-Charlemagne before that happened. Cooling herbal, restrained floral and bitter-sweet hints of black currant and citrus rind on the nose lead to a luscious tide of ripe yellow plum, white peach, lime, and grapefruit tinged with chalk, salt, and iodine. A silken texture in no way diminishes the impression of clarity and refreshment. Faintly honeyed and nut oil notes add a sense of richness and depth in a finish of utmost purity of refreshing fruit; clarity to mineral nuances; and vibratory energy. When one compares the 2006 side-by-side today, the latter does indeed show a more overt stoniness and - for all of its textural richness and additional amplitude - suffers slightly in comparison with such fresh fruit vivacity as accrues to the 2007. But either of these contrasting reflections of a great site should be well worth following for more than a decade. As usual, Jean-Charles Le Bault de la Moriniere gave his Chardonnay from the heart of En Charlemagne a year in cask followed by six months on the fine lees in tank. He picked his one Pinot block early in September, then paid his crew for eight or nine days while the rest of his parcels ripened completely. I would never have expected such quality given the weather conditions," says de la Moriniere, but then he reflected on the frequent divergence between human psychological perception of "good weather" and what really matters, namely the needs of the vine." eRobertParker.com, #186 Dec 2009, David Schildknecht "Tasted at the Domaine. This is an exquisite Corton-Charlemagne from its finest exponent. Tasted from a sample that was racked in late-September, is has a startling vibrant leesy nose with background scents of white peach, frangipane, tinned apricots and orange-blossom. The palate displays wonderful balance, a pervasive sense of effortlessness here, supreme harmony and clarity with a citrus/white peach tinged finish that forms an apt denouement for this gorgeous Corton Charlemagne. Outstanding. Drink 2011-2025+. Tasted November 2008." Neal Martin's Wine Journal

"A green fruit nose also has detectable sulfur but again, I'm confident that it will be absorbed given how recent the mise was. The big-bodied flavors are full, intense and minerally that I particularly admire the outstanding precision on

The 2000 Corton-Charlemagne has an enormously appealing nose of pears and apples. Light to medium-bodied, it expands on the palate, revealing citrus, quartz, and mineral flavors. This wine is extremely focused, with outstanding grip and a highly deli... Robert Parker. A Chardonnay wine from Burgundy in France. 2000 Domaine Bonneau du Martray Corton Charlemagne 750ml
