Description

The 2012 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, which comes from Les Pougets (the same as the red), has a bewitching floral, mineral-laden bouquet with flinty scents that should become develop once bottled. The palate is nicely balanced with a tense, yet slightly mellifluous entry. There is a fine bead of acidity here that cuts through the leesy, citrus fruit. The finish is mild-mannered but nicely focused. Very fine. -Wine Advocate

Heavy sulfur aromas flatten the underlying fruit. There is a highly appealing texture to the round, rich and generous broad-shouldered flavors that are very Corton-Charlemagne in character and culminate in an explosive and palate staining mineral-driven finish of sensational persistence. This is also quite compact at present but even so the length here is seriously special.
