Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru
2011
2010

We produced this Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru from Chardonnay vines with an average age of just over 45 years, spread between three small parcels across the south-west facing upper slopes of the hill of Corton. The growing season and harvest in 2011 were superb for Chardonnay with wonderful ripeness of fruit, purity and minerality. Bottled after 16 months in barrel this is a wine of real depth, richness and complexity. A delicious wine to drink by itself or an ideal accompaniment to richly sauced fish dishes, lobster, sautée chicken with truffle or roasted pork.

Aroma
Intense, pure, clean, beautifully defined nose of great complexity displaying lime and greengage fruit along with notes of mineral, fudge, cream and nutmeg.

Powerful, mouthwatering, lifted and fresh acidity. Excellent grip and purity and very long indeed, with a steely core around which the rest of the wine wraps itself. Complex and long, with elements of lemon, lime, crisp green apples and apricot kernel.
