Critic Notes

Bright yellow. Licorice, crushed stone, lime and wild herbs on the nose, lifted by hints of quinine and ginger. Tactile, savory and intense, conveying terrific crushed-rock mineral definition for the vintage. Wonderfully concentrated and long, without any impression of weightiness. This wine represents a blend of 45-year-old vines and vines planted in 2007. Production here was 35 hectoliters per hectare, according to winemaker Brian Sieve. Sep 2016, www.vinous.com

Score: 92-95/100Stephen Tanzer

The 2015 Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru has a pleasant citrus, dried yellow flower, mango and basalt-scented bouquet that unfurls gradually in the glass. The palate is fresh and crisp on the entry, a more linear take on the vineyard with good tension, though I would have liked more terroir expression towards the finish. I think it will stretch its wings once in bottle. Dec 2016, www.robertparker.com

This mineral driven “understated” yet “explosive” style ...

Henri Boillot on Burgundy 2018
The Vintage Henri Boillot is widely seen as the top micro-negociant for the production of the Cote d’Or’s finest white wines, including Le Montrachet. He abhors heavy whites therefore expect the style of his white wines to be lean, precise and razor-sharp. His red wine profile however is notably different. Whilst he believes acidity and tension are vital for ...
