About

92

" Apple, pear and spice aromas and flavors are the hallmarks of this rich, expressive white. Creamy in texture, this displays intensity and a long, spice-filled aftertaste. Best from 2017 through 2022."

89-92 Allen Meadows - Burghound

"100% from vines in Aloxe and all domaine fruit. This was noticeably reduced though the underlying fruit appears to be fresh. Otherwise there is very good intensity and richness to the attractively mineral-tinged flavors that display noticeably dryness on the somewhat gassy finish. This is difficult to read as it's not clear if it will harmonize in time or not."

91 Neal Martin - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2013 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, picked on October 8 has a lifted citrus lemon and orange-sorbet bouquet with fine delineation. The palate is fresh on the entry with decent weight, cohesive in the mouth, with light bitter lemon and granitic finish. I actually find more complexity here than in the Montrachet."
