Jean Chartron Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2011

Chardonnay from France - Burgandy
Review Date : 18-Sep-2014
Bright, light golden yellow at the core, lighter on rim. This has a full, voluminous nose with breadth and richness, quite bold and opulent with a stylish amalgam of yellow stonefruits, nuts and toasty oak, along with some flinty sulphide complexities. Fulsome on palate, with rich yellow stonefruits and nutty layers, the mouthfeel is structured with some phenolic grip and dry textures. There is breadth, depth and a robust, solidness, the wine revealing complexing flinty detail, and the wine has a very long finish. A robust, rich Corton-Charlemage. 6-8+ years. Fruit from 0.08 ha of vines, 31 y.o., from ‘La Charlemagne’, the wine aged 12 months in 40% new barrels. An average of 600 bottles produced annually. 18.5+/20 Sep 2014 RRP $199.00
