The 2012 Corton-Charlemagne (from Le Charlemagne) is incredibly primary and intense. Today, it is the wine's pure sense of structure that stands out most. I very much like the sense of energy and brightness here. At the same time, it looks like the 2012 is going to need at least a few years in bottle before it is ready to show the full extent of its pedigree. There is plenty of thrill here, though, and a lot to look forward to as well. January 2014. www.vinous.com Drink 2020+
The 2012 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru comes from “Le Charlemagne” and “En Charlemagne”. It has a perfumed bouquet with orange blossom and quince aromas entwined around hints of walnut and litchi. It gathers momentum in the glass. The palate is vibrant, very well-balanced with a citric edge. There is a lot of energy here, with a crisp intense finish that lingers long in the mouth. This should turn out to be a very composed Corton-Charlemagne. ||Domaine de la Vougeraie was founded in 1998 when the domaines of Claudine Deschamps, Pierre Ponnelle, Louis Voilland and L’Heritier-Guyot were merged. I remember it well because at the time I was exporting L’Heritier-Guyot’s wines to Japan (to be frank, they were quite ordinary back then.) The man behind the venture was Jean-Claude Boisset, whose own considerable holdings meant that Domaine de la Vougeraie became a significant player in the Cote d’Or, with 37 hectares of prime vineyard including seven grand crus to their name. I have to be honest and say that like many others, I liked the first few vintages of their wine, but found them a little predictable and seemed to struggle for charm and personality. Perhaps that was a reflection of former winemaker Pascal Marchand applying the practices he had learned at Comte Armand: a lot of new oak with 100% de-stemmed fruit – not really my bag. When he departed for pastures new, incoming winemaker Pierre Vincent seemed to apply a gentler touch. The new oak is still part of the wines’ character, but there is certainly a more considered approach, plus he is more open to using whole cluster fruit. Managing such an array of wines with a relatively small team cannot be easy in challenging vintages such as 2012, or for that matter 2013. Pierre told me that his average yields were 22 hectoliters per hectare, though for the grand crus, they were down to 17 hectoliters per hectare. eRobertParker.com.December, 2013
