Henri Boillot Corton Charlemagne 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"This flight of 2011s comes to a close with the 2011 Corton-Charlemagne, a cool, introspective and powerful wine. Layers of bright citrus, mint and crushed rocks fill out the wine’s big, broad-shouldered frame nicely. The intense, tight finish suggests the Corton-Charlemagne is going to require a measure of patience. ...94-96" WA 08/12 "Bright light yellow. Highly complex and expressive aromas of citrus peel, menthol, crushed stone and tarragon accented by ginger and nutmeg. Powerful, tactile and ripe, conveying an impression of tightly coiled energy to its lightly saline apple and dusty stone flavors. Superb energy here. This very masculine Corton-Charlemagne finishes with firm tannins. Boillot's top grand crus should turn out to be among the stars of the 2011 vintage...93-96" IWC 09/12
