Corton Charlemagne Faiveley 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

93+ Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: "Bright pale yellow. Aromas of smoke, white plum, acacia flower, nutmeg and salty minerality. Fat, dense and spicy, showing a distinctly saline quality and very good energy to its flavors of peach oil, white truffle and toast complicated by a leesy element. With extended time in the recorked bottle, this wine showed more adamant dusty minerality and musky ginger and quinine nuances, and my score went up. Clearly needs at least six or seven years to shows its inherent complexity, and I would not be surprised if it merited an even higher rating down the road." 91-93 Points, Burghound:"This also has that phenolic character of olive oil hints along with relatively strong reduction that renders the fruit impossible to read. There is reduction in the mouth as well though there is good vibrancy to the exceptionally rich and voluminous flavors that evidence plenty of muscle and minerality on the saline, clean and dry finish." 94 Points, Wine Spectator: "Aromas of lemon cake, white flowers and sweet spices lead to lime, apple and hazelnut flavors in this elegant, intense and well-balanced white. Almost seamless now, but should improve with age. Best from 2016 through 2026."
