Corton Charlemagne (0.75 L)
The 2016 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, which is owned by Drouhin and is located in “Longettes,” had quite a virile, fiery bouquet that calmed down with aeration. Hints of tinned peach and dried apricot emerge with time. The palate is quite rich on the entry with lovely honeyed touches both in terms of taste and texture, a spicy vein emerging with time and showing commendable depth toward the finish. Very fine, even if it does not quite match up to their brilliant 2015.
