This may be the most complex of all the wines we tasted this evening as you expect from a Grand Cru. Scents of violet, lavender, lemon, mineral, cinnamon and ginger all made appearances at various times as I kept returning to the glass to find something new. Citrus, spice and mineral played on my tongue along with an intense acidity that needs time to mellow, yet the wine itself seemed very light on the palate. It will very definitely reward those patient enough to let it reach full maturity.

This is a classic example of Corton-Charlemagne with its impressively layered floral, green fruit, lime and stone-infused nose that precedes citrusy, precise and powerful mineral-driven flavors that possess real muscle on the almost painfully intense...

WS 90pts. - According to the Wine Spectator: A white with a sense of place. Acacia, lemon blossom, apple and mineral aromas and flavors abound, all matched to an elegant frame. This is balanced, lingering on the long, mineral-tinged aftertaste. Drink now through 2016. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 250 cases imported.

Here the nose is classic Meursault in character with its aromas of light toasted hazelnut, pear and peach that merge gracefully into rich, round and very generous sappy middle weight flavors that offer limited depth but are otherwise delicious and sa...

Relatively generous but not dominant wood intrudes upon the very ripe plum, cassis and floral aromas lead to extremely rich, opulent and palate drenching broad-scaled flavors that possess more dry extract than any wine to this point and possibly in t...

A gentle hint of wood sets off attractive aromas of red berry fruit, earth and rose petal that merge into supple and agreeable middle weight flavors that for all of the accessibility of the mid-palate also carry more than a little austerity over to t...

Winemaker's Notes:

A discreet touch of oak highlights the naturally spicy floral and high-toned orchard and green fruit aromas before giving way to textured, sappy and almost painfully intense full-bodied flavors brimming with both dry extract and ample minerality on the hugely long and impeccably balanced finish. This is a really lovely wine that possesses everything it needs to deliver a first-rate drinking experience with a decade of cellar time. As good as this is, and it is very impressive, it's not necessarily superior to the magnificent Perrières though it may require a bit more bottle age to arrive at its peak.Allen Meadows' Burghound94 points
