Faiveley Corton-Charlemagne 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"Discreet if not invisible wood frames a reserved but ripe, fresh and high-toned white peach and green apple nose that merges seamlessly into fine, precise, powerful and intensely stony flavors that culminate in an explosive finish with the same vaguely saline quality as the Bienvenues. This incredibly concentrated effort is a positively stunning and completely classic Corton-Charlemagne that is built to age...93-96" BH 06/10

Elegance and class here. Bright crisp acidity, tropical fruit, soft oak with a finish that just goes on....
