Corton Charlemagne (0.75 L)
Hints of oak toast don’t materially detract from the otherwise wonderfully fresh and cool aromas of green apple, lime, petrol and white flower. The muscular, firm and broad-shouldered flavors are clean, dry and solidly intense with excellent mid-palate concentration before culminating in a penetrating and mineral-suffused finish that delivers very fine length. This beautifully chiseled effort is quite backward at present but I very much like the upside development potential.
