A message we received loud and clear from our September 2014 buying trip to Burgundy was buy the whites from the 2011 vintage. They are what the Burgundians are drinking now and are clean, crisp and beautifully balanced. With this in mind we’ve been tasting as many as possible and the 2011 Corton Charlemagne from Remoissenet was a favourite in the office.
Corton Charlemagne is a Grand Cru vineyard capable of a brilliance that can rival the very best in Burgundy. Robert Parker described it in his 1990 work as, “the greatest white Burgundy after Le Montrachet and Chevalier Montrachet” - yet against both it is very well priced for the quality.

Exquisite bouquet of apple, honey baked lemon and beeswax. The palate shows lovely soft, round texture with fine acidity and concentrated but controlled richness. On the palate: caramel, orange zest and lemon custard are augmented with mineral and an intense salinity that unfurls on the finish. Sensational. Drink now or hold for up to 10 years.

Remoissenet is one of Burgundy’s oldest names. The business is run from stunning 14th century buildings in Beaune, and, since 2005, quality has surged under the ownership of the Milstein family. FINE+RARE regularly ship Remoissenet wines direct from the domaine and have access to many excellent vintages going as far back as 1959.
