Here too there are vestiges of post-bottling sulfur that overwhelms the fruit at present. The broad-shouldered flavors are tightly coiled and highly energetic as this really vibrates in the mouth. There is excellent mid-palate density with an almost pungent minerality that adds a sense of lift to the moderately dry, highly complex and seriously long finish. This will definitely require at least 5 years of bottle age to unwind and flesh out but it should be more than worth the wait as the potential here is striking. Recommended. Tasted: Jun 15, 2014. Drink: 2019+



The 2012 Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru feels a little predictable on the nose, not quite delivering the energy and delineation of the better Premier Crus. The palate is nicely balanced with well-integrated oak, touches of blood orange and a pleasant saline element toward the finish. It just seems to miss the breeding of a great Corton-Charlemagne. eRobertParker.com.August, 2015
