Having sold out of our allocation last year, we are delighted to be able to offer additional cases of a brilliant Grand Cru from one of our favourite operations, the 2014 Corton Charlemagne from Mischief & Mayhem. On tasting it, we immediately reserved a barrel for our clients and it sold-through almost immediately. It is therefore fantastic to have secured a little extra stock...
Corton Charlemagne is perfect for those that actually want to drink Grand Cru white Burgundy. While prices for rival, and indeed lesser, Grands Crus have gone into the stratosphere, prices of Corton Charlemagne remain reasonable despite the immense quality. A quality encapsulated by Parker as far back as 1990 when he called it “the greatest white Burgundy after Le Montrachet and Chevalier Montrachet”. At its best it is simply sublime.
“You should buy the 2014s… I would suggest not only buying but buying aggressively” – Allen Meadows on 2014 White Burgundy
Combine these phenomenal raw materials with a vintage of the quality of 2014 and the impeccable winemaking from Michael and Fiona Ragg and the result is something special. We sampled this from barrel earlier this year and it is outstanding, a complex and rich Corton Charlemagne from old vines that will wow those lucky enough to get their hands on it.
Sadly just three barrels were made in total (the equivalent of just 75 dozen!) and with this the last at the domaine, it will now disappear from the market. As such please don’t hesitate if you’d like a case secured...
