Carolus Magnus where have you gone? Is this wine really worthy of its imperial title? I know that 1996 was the best vintage for white Burgundy since the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact, but this particular bottle (a half bottle, at that) was no show-stopper. To contrast with Allen Meadows's review, this wine was not stunning, wonderfully complex or extremely pretty. It was a very workable white Burgundy with balance and a touch of elegance, but none of the raw power expected from a Grand Cru wine. Honestly, its touch of minerality would have had me thinking "this is a good white Beaune wine" in a blind tasting. Now perhaps this disappointment is the result of this being a half bottle, but the wine wasn't showing serious signs of aging or oxidation. Maybe, however, the outside of the bottle, with the label torn and mangled like it had been in a railway accident, holds the answer here; this bottle could have had a rough life in the cellar and pantry. This review applies to a half bottle.
