Vincent Girardin Corton-Charlemagne 2011
Great clarity to the aromas of lime and menthol. Opulent and solid but backward and dry, with an almost metallic quality to the pineapple and stone flavors. This youthfully strict wine is like sucking on a mouthful of rocks now. Finishes subtle and very long.Add winemaker's notes
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

Great clarity to the aromas of lime and menthol. Opulent and solid but backward and dry, with an almost metallic quality to the pineapple and stone flavors. This youthfully strict wine is like sucking on a mouthful of rocks now. Finishes subtle and very long.
Full yellow with a golden tinge. Exotic aromas of apricot, honey, vanilla and nutty oak, with suggestions of dried fruits. Big, round and rich; very ripe and thick for Corton-Charlemagne and a bit unrefined in comparison to Girardinandrsquo;s 2007 grand crus. But thereandrsquo;s also excellent energy and lift and a very long finish.
Intense aromas of lemon verbena, mineral and spice are followed by lemon, peach and stone flavors. Young and racy, with fine intensity that builds on the palate. This has terrific energy, along with a dry, flinty feel on the finish. Best from 2012 through 2022.
Girardin has the luxury of fielding two bottlings of 2006 Corton Charlemagne. This first hails from lower-elevation parcels in all three communes that share this grand cru. Lemon, lime, and overt stone and chalk dominate the nose and palate here, and the sheer finishing refreshment of citrus helps ward off the hint of warmth and keep the mineral cast from rendering this impressively-concentrated wine too austere. Still, this will demand some patience, and should cellar well for at least 6andndash;8 years.
Cool, musky aromas of underripe pineapple, clove, menthol and oak char. Fat, creamy and rich, with intense apple and spice flavors. A very pliant style of Corton-Charlemagne, not at all hard. This is a blend of three parcels, with a piece in Pernand-Vergelesses accounting for 50% of the wine.
