External Reviews for Vincent Girardin Corton-Charlemagne Quintessence
Here the wood is a background nuance if not invisible, highlighting spicy, pure and wonderfully expressive green fruit aromas that are really quite classy while merging into rich, round and stylish medium full flavors brimming with huge amounts of dry extract and an explosive, driving and persistent finish where the wood resurfaces. This is a serious effort but one that is generous and beautifully balanced, which will permit it to age well.
Smoky aromas of flinty silex and chicken broth. Sweeter than the basic Corton-Charlemagne bottling... boasts superb richness and smoky depth. Extremely unevolved, and longer and more powerful on the back end, with a ton of potential.
