The Jadot 2006 Corton Charlemagne fermented at what used to be called a glacial pace. Any doubts about the advisability of showing it on the heels of the other grand crus in this collection were largely dispelled by a clarion aromatic fanfare of citrus and herbs; a tactile, quarry-like depth and density of crushed stone on the palate; and a finish of prodigious length, scrupulous pristinity, and electric vivacity. As this opens up, a sense of sheer sweet pit fruit emerges such as one seldom encounters from this appellation, and so do saline, savory sides to its minerality that will add to the fascination at table and over a decade or more of bottle maturation. Given its price and availability - there are all of 33 barrels worth - this is an indulgence in grand cru pedigree that a significant number of consumers should be able to enjoy, even perhaps especially in hard times.

Winemaker's Notes:

"Louis Jadot pride themselves on the weight and class of their CortonCharlemagne. The 2006 is exceptionally opulent, with the delicious aromatics ofripe chardonnay fruit underpinned by the classic minerality of this grand cru.Approachable early but with power to age." (Jasper Morris MW, BBR Buyer)
