Critic Notes

The 2016 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru has an attractive bouquet with lemon curd, dried apricot and chalk dust scents that gain intensity with aeration.

There is something refined and understated about this Corton-Charlemagne and as such I would afford it three to five years in bottle. Dec 2017, www.robertparker.com

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 ...
