Domaine Faiveley Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"Full yellow-gold. Deeply pitched, brooding nose hints at white peach, mirabelle and honey. Big, chewy, ripe and rich, with smoky soil tones currently dominating the wine's primary fruit. This is tactile and surprisingly round for young Corton-Charlemagne but will need patience to express itself. Its sheer density and length suggest it will reward extended cellaring."Stephen Tanzer's Int'l Wine Cellar
